I'm in England and have been tracing various branches of my English and Irish family for about 25 years now. I'm on most genealogy web sites, especially the free ones ;) and am always prepared to do look ups for people.
I love genealogy, even when you hit the brick walls that drive you mad for years and am quite addicted.
I may just have to read some of the books you lot have recommended as they sound good.
I live in Australia where it is a little more difficult to research English ancestors but except for one branch of the family I have gone about as far as I can.
It has been a very interesting exercise and one day I may even manage to breach the wall and find that last bit of information.
I've been on LT a few years now, but only caught the genealogy bug just under a year ago. It's led me into all sorts of history reading, as I've developed into finding out more about m ancestors lives.
I'm in Scotland with a healthy dollop of Irish ancestors needing a bit more work.
THAT really was a challenge but with a little help from a half-third cousin whom I met online, who was looking for the same people, we found the family and traced it except for a couple of short-lived wives of my great great grandfather; I am descended from the third wife. My cousin is descended from one of the other two.
Edited to add that I think that I must be one of the few people in the English speaking world with no Irish forebears.
