Hi
I have just joined this site, and I think I am going to enjoy using it.
I am by no means an expert in family hgistory, but having researched my own family & my late hudbands family, have gained a fair bit of experience over the years (since 1993)

I am willing to help anyone if I can, I am a member of Ancestry UK so can offer help to anyone seeking information from the various census contained on there

I don't know if this will help anyone as you obviously need to know the names of the people, but if you are looking for living relatives the Friends Reunited website worked for me last week. I found two relatives on there and they have been in touch after I sent them both a message, now we have emails flying back and forth.

I also am happy to offer general help. I've been doing family history research since teenage ( 50 plus years) and on this forum for 5 years now.

I am medically qualified and can ofter help with translating causes of death and issues of genetically inheritited diseases. I am also interested in disasters and have casualty lists of many man made disasters, plane crash train crash, fires, etc

May be there could be some sort of mentoring scheme for those that would like it

Hello, I've just joined the forum & am looking for some kind person with access to the National Achieves at Kew. Whilst researching my late uncle, who served in the Shanghai police force, I found a reference to his Will, file FO 917/2591 for William Moore 1925. I would greatly appreciate the details of the Will, especially the beneficiaries.
Best regards, Tom

Hi Everyone. I am new at this and thought it would be a nice idea to try and put together a little family tree for my kiddies! I have 2 kids who keep me busy and have no idea where to start! I have read lots and lots of help pages but all I keep coming back to are subscription (£) based website to search for relatives. I am not looking to go back to the day dot but would love to have an idea or where we all came from! Any help would be appreciated. At the moment I am only looking into my side of the family. Thanks Nikki welcome

Hi Nikki
welcome
to the forum

Its all free on here
I suggest you make a post in the beginners help forum if the person you name is dead, or in the private sensitive forum if they are still alive

Give us some names you know are correct with as much other info you have like ages, birthplace etc

I'm sure someone will be able to get you going

Hi Nikki,

Welcome to the forum, if you have any Birth Marriage or death certificates, they are the best documents to start with and a great source of information. Also speak to as many elderly relatives that you have, it's amazing the stories they can come up with, there is often an element of truth even if they don't remember all the details.
You can build a tree for free on most of the genealogy websites, and you can use the BMD and census on Findmypast and Ancestry for free for two weeks trial.
Hope this helps

Amanda
