Genealogy is a great hobby but, sadly, too often those who are new to it try to ‘reinvent the wheel’. With so much that could be done, why not let this site give you a great start and then use your time to work on whatever interests you. If you come across something really interesting then we may be able to help you share that with others. Isn’t that what the Internet is for?
Our Families Database is one of the largest online databases of genealogical data, covering thousands of families. Response to the database was really positive back in 2002. Every year since then, more families have been added and many improvements have been made, with more of Genealogy’s traps identified & corrected and connections found between families. If you have not seen it before, do have a look at it. Even if you are already an experienced genealogist, it would be surprising indeed if you had looked at every family we have covered or source we have used.
As reported last year, we will be reducing the scope of the site this year to something more manageable. This involves pulling together the sundry Genealogy Support aspects of the site into an Extra Content section that will replace the (Social) Histories side of the site. This is being done in stages so as to minimise the disruption of our work on the Families Database which remains the main focus of the site.
