Genealogy and family history
There are hundreds of family genealogy sites on he web which give information on how to research your own family tree.
A major site is www.ancestry.co.uk which requires you to register.
A lot of free information can be found on the Internet at sites like www.british-genealogy.com and
Remember you can go back via your mother’s family or your father’s family in order to increase the chance of finding some interesting ancestors. It is best to interview all living relatives first to get a picture of the immediate family’s layout but remember some memories can become hazy very quickly. Once you have a few acts you can them go on to look at records in Local Record offices or the local history section of public libraries. Many records are also held at the Public Record Office in Kew. Many parish records have been recorded by the Mormons so it does not necessarily mean a trip to the Parish Church where your ancestor was born or married although this may prove exciting.
You don’t have to buy an expensive family tree package but you can buy reasonably cheap software over the Web which will help you make your family tree look impressive.
