I started researching the Scottish side of my family when I found an old family bible when I was a child. I then tried to research my father's side of the family in Northern Ireland but it has been a struggle even though I live in Northern Ireland and have relatively easy access to the records that are available. My family history research has taken me around the world in a virtual sense and sometimes in a physical sense - to South Africa, Canada, Australia, United States, etc and I really enjoy making contact with all my cousins, wherever they may be.
