Pages to celebrate our ancestors

The Mersey Branch are very keen to help their members (and others) publish short articles about their ancestors.

Please click here to view the index to "Our Favourite Ancestors".

We are offering to place a story and photograph that you have written in this section of our web pages. The stories will remain online for five years which should ensure that many people right across the globe will enjoy your story.

You can see two examples by clicking here Anderson or here Blyth
Of course we do need to place some limitations on the length of the story and have provided some guidelines below.

The cost for members to use this service is $10 which will cover the five year period, an outlay of $2 per year! Non-members will be charged $20. This service is being provided at a vey low cost. If any changes are to be made to pages once they are online this will require further payment, please read the guidelines below concerning this.
