About Me.

A Family Tree researcher for over 30 years and a blogger since 2010, I love to share what I find. This blog has opened up a new way to contact and keep in-touch with both family and friends. It mightn't always be genealogy related and you might not agree with my point of view but I want you to comment, ask questions and look upon this blog as 'friends having a chat'.
Enjoy!

The three of us went back to the bank on Thursday. They were short staffed and we had to stand at the enquiry counter, that was ok. The he had problems logging our information into an external site, for checking. Could we go away, have a cuppa and he would call us when he had got it fixed. Two of the three had appointments at 11.00am and it was already 10.10am. Off for a cuppa and the phone rings. He has to send the hard copies to the department, could we come back, NEXT Thursday. Well since we need a bank account, we agreed.

Walking home two of us discussed finding another bank. Within the next 2 hours we found a bank, with an account aimed at Community Groups, went to said bank and opened the account. Wont be going back to the first bank.
