Was watching that program the other night with Patsy Kensitt, seen a few before, was quite interesting.

It got me thinking about looking into my Family Tree, and my mum signed up to Genes Reunited a few weeks ago and has got somewhere with it - want to try and help her!

Wondered if anyone else had looked up there's/or know how to go about it?!

Any positive comments welcome.

**** that's amazing.
Yeh was pretty good....not looked at any other side, this was just my grandfathers side....

Infact, got back to 1651 to an ancestor called Longfellow (John).....

Can't get any further before that, but there is a William Longfellow, who was quite a famous poet in America.....I have been trying to find evidence he is a ancestor but haven't found anything.

Most of the Longfellows I found, lived in Horsforth near Leeds and apparently this William Longfellow was a decendant of a Longfellow who emigrated to America...I just can't find him :(

Also found a cool newspaper cutting about one of my ancestors, who died in the 1700's....another William Longfellow, have attached it.
