        Hi Julie

        I was born and raised in Doncaster then moved to Scun thorpe when I married !!

        Aberdeen is great, today we are going down to the beach and then the
        harbour as there is a Navy Frigate there and its allowing the public
        to look around it !!

            Hi there choccyholic, welcome from Oregon, USA! Wow, do I wish I'd thought up your name for mine! LOL

            Yorkshire is so pretty! I've had a couple of nice afternoons wandering around York. Very pretty and the country side is so great! My Uncle has been researching the family, past migrations, etc and has learned that the Rugg side of the bunch came from Sowerby. I have managed to find 2 places with that name in Yorkshire and Uncle D. doesn't know which one is the one!

            I have a copy of the photo book put together by 'James Herriot' and just love looking at it.

              Hiya kathy,

              thank you for the lovely welcome!!

              Oh wow your all the way from the USA, thats is another one of my faovurite places besides Scotland!!

              There are 2 places in Yorkshire called Sowerby, 1 is up in North Yorkshire near Thirsk. The other is in West Yorkshire near Halifax. Your uncle could try finding your family on the English census and it would tell him whether they were from West Yorkshire, which is also know as West Riding or if they were from North Yorkshire which i think would come under York.

              Good luck with that and let me know how you get on!!

                  Hiya Babz,

                  i could do with your dad's help too, i'm also trying to research my family tree in Yorkhsire but i'm finding it a bit daunting.

                    I'll check with the Uncle and see where he is on dates. He is also in the middle of a DIY in his kitchen so spending more time on that at this point.

                    Choccy, check in the Genology forum. Marhar is ther a lot!

                    We got to see a dolphin when crossing the Shannon estuary on 2003, very cool!
