Sheila Jelley has been a member of PUG for some twenty years and attended the first PUG meetings at David Hawgood's in Ealing - remember. On attending a meeting in Reading I was co-opted onto the Committee as Membership Secretary which position I held and enjoyed for several year. Have now 'retired' to East Devon where I hope to reorganise all my research. As mentioned by others now the London Parish Registers are online in ancestry.co.uk many brick walls are being knocked down. I use Peditree daily for the four One Name Studies I have registered with the Guild of One Name Studies. Hanscomb in London and Bedfordshire, Swinyard in London, Watkiss in London and back to the 1600's in Shropshire and Jelley/Jelly who are in Surrey, Leicestershire, Somerset & South Wales. DNA Projects have now been registered with FTDNA for Jelley, Swinyard & Watkiss. I am able to make an appropriate source item to keep track of the results. I have also used the filtering system to find out who would be a good candidate for the Y-DNA test. I also have my father's ancestors in Scotland on the east coast which is another kind of research. The best of PUG is the quick answer to everyday problems one may have with Peditree/Pedigree and the ever available knowledge of Murray as well as Colin Liebenrood and many others.
