Here you will find information on tracing your ancestors. Genealogy is one of the fastest growing pastimes and the internet is quickly becoming an invaluable resource. There are now searchable databases like the Mormon Church website, census online etc. (links below) and others which make life a lot easier.

We include local resources, links and general information

Local Resources

These resources will hold records like local birth, marriage and death indexes, census returns, trade directories, parish registers, monumental inscriptions, non-conformist records, cemetery records, electoral registers, rate books, local newspapers, probate records, maps and photographs.

Family Records Centre

The Family Records Centre closed in March 2008 and therefore all enquiries can be made to the online ordering service and guidance on family history pages on the Gov.uk site link above

The Mormon (Latter Day Saints) Family History Website They collate world genealogical records and these are available on line.

Starting out in genealogy

Start with relatives - talk to older family members and build rough family tree with what they can remember of names, dates, places.

Search family for copies of any certificates - birth and marriage most likely. Also check for any other family papers, letters etc.

You can start from this known information and check it out with the official records using the sources above.

Read some introductory books - there are lots about these days. A good one is 'Short Cuts in Family History' by Michael Gandy. published 1998 by Countryside Books and the Federation of Family History Societies.
ISBN 1 85306 3169
