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