      Hi everyone,

      For those of you who are a past user of The Free Family Tree Service on
      SKY NEWS Text please find below the Tree Tops Update. For those of you
      who have never heard of it then I hope that you will use the service in
      your search for those elusive ancestors. Below you will see a list of
      web sites worth checking out, some you may know of and others are new
      but all worth visiting.
      Regards,
      Carol

      SURNAME SEARCHES on previously screened queries - updated Nov 1999.

      1) The idea is to send your FAMILY TREE QUERY of no more than 40
      words which must include a postal address, and it will go on British
      Television on Sky News fastext for one week and be seen all over
      the UK, Ireland and Europe. It will also be shown on the British CHANNEL
      5 Text Pages 488 & 489, This is a FREE service and you do not need to
      have the facility to use it.

      2) The 2nd FREE service is called 'WE'LL MEET AGAIN" which is also
      a query service but more for the living, old pals, war buddies, 20c
      descendants etc. Again 40 words.

      All queries for the above two services to be sent to:-
      e-mail: tree.tops@...

      Lists of surnames taken from OBITUARIES 1992-1999 from the Evening
      Advertiser Newspaper, Swindon, Wiltshire, England. Original copies of
      over 12,000 obituaries have been inserted into two large books and have
      been indexed.
      PLEASE, do not dismiss this index because of the years of death. Many
      reached a great age and were born in the L1890s - E1900s. Many who are
      listed died outside the Wiltshire area. In Memoriums not yet completed
      but will also be checked.
