    st.helens -dirty old town no more

    you are absolutely right. I grew up outside pilks top works and my mam couldn't hang any washing out on the line because it all got covered in black sooty spots,the smog in the town was like pea soup and it stank.

    Y-DNA (& Autosomal DNA)

    I use MY HERITAGE the basic price is about £60 but that is only for your dna to be put on the site and show all you are connected to. for FREE research I use IGI FAMILY SEARCH and it's nearly as good as ANCESTRY, I also use MYFTDNA which is free and you can migrate your dna and fam/tree from other sites.
