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 and ask to look at documents and photographs to start you off.

There are many sources of information available to help you, certificates can provide information going back to 1837, parish registers, newspapers and other records can be useful sources to help you with your search.
