Read about historical events at the time they were happening. Perhaps you'll discover your ancestor in their local newspaper?
Have you been tuning in to Family Finders, the new series from the BBC that follows the work of professional genealogists – ‘family finders’ – as they track down lost relatives to bring families back together.
In yesterday’s episode, one person searching for their relatives used Genes Reunited to aid them on their journey.
You can watch the episode on BBC’s iPlayer here, and if you skip to around 16:39, you’ll hear how “Genes Reunited played a key part. Many evenings were spent searching for births, marriages, deaths and a lot of information was gathered.”
