Family history and searches

More and more people are becoming interested in family history.

Tracing your family tree can be a fascinating, rewarding and sometimes-frustrating hobby.

Your research should start with what you know:

  • speak to family members
  • ask to look at family documents
  • ask to look at family photos

There are many sources of information available to help you:

  • certificates (can provide information going back to 1837)
  • parish registers
  • newspapers

Other records can be useful sources to help you with your search.
