    Anyone else into ancestry?

    ive been tracing my family history for three years now, i saw a photo of my great grandfathers grave on some ones tree i got in contact with him his great grandfather was the youngest brother my great grandfather was the oldest brother in a family line we share some of the costs of certificates when we are double checking info . my great x3 grandmother died of natural causes when a horse fell on her ,, makes me wonder what they call an accident ,, i found there was a lot of trying before buying most of my ancestors were pregnant or already had a child when they married ,,, my dads disgusted !!lol. on my husbands tree im in burma , india , scotland , canada , australia etc ,,,, on mine im in shropshire and the black country for a couple of hundred years obviously they must have been happy there , the most unusual job i have found is my family living in bobbington shropshire frederick augustus perry [ great name by the way ] he was mananger of the artificial manure works !!! the mind boggles !!!! the saddest info i found was the work house , i had family in there so sad ,,

    Taking your own life.

    dont they call suicide a permenant cure for a temporary problem ? my husbands mother took her own life when he was 8 she left 4 children under 9 it was an overdose , she was a manic depressive , i remember being on this site two and a half years ago and some one posted a thread about suicide being selfish , it was a shock to see it , my mother had took her own life 3 days before , it made me angry as the thought of my mother not being to be able to see any light at the end of the tunnel and this became her only choice , wasnt selfish it was really really sad , she took an over dose , which i now know is a very painful way to die as the liver shuts down and it creates a huge amount of suffering [ this i was told by the coroners office , they obviously felt i should know this for some reason !!] i do know that if some one is set on taking their own life there is little you can do , you can take them to the hospital to see a psyc but generally they know all the right things to say to make you look an idiot , and then the psyc at the hospital will tell you that people who say they are going to kill them selves are just looking for attention and will never do it [ @#$%^ i should have invited him to her funeral ] a year after she died i found out she had tried it a few months before unsuccessfully , which was a bit of a shock , which i try not to think about to hard , who knows if i had known whether it would have changed any thing , but the psyc at the hospital knew about it and never said . i couldnt quite accept that she had died as i didnt see her at her house the police wouldnt let me in as it was a crime scene and then the coronor wouldnt let me see her as they said it would be better to see her after the funeral home had embalmed her , some thing to do with lividity ? as she was found face down , of course there is also the coronor and autopsys to deal with and any where between 12 to 18 months later you have an inquest , if i had a terminal disease i may go at my own choosing in my own time and i think in those circumstances my family would under stand im not saying its what i would do , but its a possability , who knows , but in the case of my mother and other who suffer from depression , its so very sad they they can see no hope , and as much as you try you cant get through to them , and no matter how much time you give and all the words you say to try and convince the that there is hope and there is joy in life , it falls on deaf ears , and its a shame that i wasnt enough , by that i mean her pain was greater than making new memories with me xxxxxxxx

    Help is here

    I like midland my first job when i stepped off the plane 32 years ago was in midland gate shopping centre , my father lives in viveash near the river , he has no problems there , there are some very expensive houses surrounding midland like west midland and guildford , it has a good bus service and train service , it dosnt take long to get into the city , so its quite central . I will admit i wouldnt want to be around the train station late at night , but there again that applies to most train stations

  11. its so sad it baught back memories of when i lived in singapore in 1997and silk air 185 went down just before xmas , a girl from our apartment block went down on it , an english girl called elizabeth , it went down in pelambang sumatra , it was thought it was suicide by the pilot , there was a lot of evidence pointing towards it , they never recovered any of the bodies , i think every one in singapore knew some one on that plane
