Genealogy is the tracing of your forebearers. It is the tracing of your lines of decent. Family history is more than that. It is not just names and dates it is professions, addresses, what they died of,
newspaper reports mentioning them, criminal records and more. It is a fuller picture of them.
If you are trying to trace your own family tree check out my facebook page.....Family Tree Help Group......a place to ask questions!!!
Tracing your family tree can be annoying, frustrating, tedious, boring and lots of other
negative coments. It can also be interesting, wonderful, exciting and a lot of positive things.
Were your family lords of the manor or paupers. Did they have prison records,
poor law records or any other interesting records?
Do you watch 'Who do you think you are' and wonder who YOU are?
I started tracing my
own family tree over 30 years ago and am still finding wonderful things out. I have found family I never knew before and worked out which family stories were true and which were exagerated or not true at all. I have hit many brick walls and
have had to learn how to get past them. I have helped friends with their trees along the way and finally decided a few years ago to become a full time professional genealogist and family historian.
many different packages available, from just starting your tree and allowing you to continue, helping you past brick walls to compiling a tree of many generations.
You can have all the certificates (birth, marrriage, death and census) supplied,
or just the bare minimum to reduce the cost.
You will get all copies of information found, not just typed accounts.
As all trees
are different I cannot give you a time when I will be finished with your tree, but will keep you informed with weekly emails.
