If you've reached this blog after reading my article on the Sunday Circle, then I'm sure I piqued your interest :) Thank you very much for visiting!
This blog basically narrates my research in the parish records of Attard, Zurrieq, Zabbar and other localities. I tried to transcribe the records and provide a translation to give you a head start in the right direction if you plan to research your own family tree.
As with all blogs, the most recent entry is shown first, so if you want to start reading you should start from the first blog, here: http://barbaravassallo.blogspot.com/2007/04/preface.html
Once you've read this, if you're interested in my own family tree, feel free to visit http://lrdmagic.mysite.maltanet.net/genealogy
I am sorry to refuse any request for doing any research on your behalf - I barely have time to do my own! - not even against payment.
Beleive me, if you have the time, nothing beats the joy of finding unknown ancestors, one by one. The experience brings you face to face with records written by parish priests who have had face-to-face contact with your own ancestors. These are invaluable documents - so make sure you take good care of them!
I would appreciate any comment you might wish to leave to this blog.
Thanks for your time
