Information from relatives

The first thing to do is to gather together as much information as you can eg talk to relatives about your family, what they did, where they came from etc., collect family documents eg certificates, photographs, letters, family bibles etc.

These can contain vital information when tracing your ancestors.

Starting with the most recent births, deaths and marriages you should work backwards from these. Don't worry if you have limited information on your family, you can start searching from just your own name and date of birth.
