A successful genealogy search comes from a combination of knowing which records exist and how to get access to them at a price you can afford; being able to select from alternative solutions; and knowing how to get the most information from the documents you find. At the U3A Genealogy Group you will find lots of advice to help start you on the path of discovery with your family’s past.
Two notes of warning; Firstly the beginner should not be surprised if progress comes in fits and starts and second if the bug bites you may be still tracing your family into the early hours of the morning – So be warned!.
Your quest may discover three or four generations in a single day, or you may take several months to uncover a single generation however the secret is to never give up.
Most genealogists do not join a Family History society but if you would prefer the companionship of other like minded people on the trail of their ancestor’s past then our group would love to see you.
