Following on from her previous book, “Meet Your Ancestors” Diana Marelli provides you with the knowledge you need to build the history of your ancestors without leaving the comfort of your own home. Using only the Internet, you will be able to: source birth, marriage and death registers (bmd); locate, access and print census information from 1841; locate and print parish records; build your family tree through a combination of these and other resources; and set up a family history database to record and store your findings. By the end of this book you will become proficient at genealogical research. And you will be able to provide your children and future generations with a picture of how their families evolved over at least five generations.
