I've seen courses advertised by Oxford University, Institute of Heraldic & Genealogical Studies and Open University. Has anybody done one and can say what advantages/disadvantages it has/had?
We have new category icons against the forums on the forum index page today.
This forum has a man's photo as its icon.
I just thought it might be interesting to see if anyone can work out who that is and why we thought it appropriate for a section that is about members...
During my research into the Hurrell family of Essex, I acquired a box of old photos and postcards that had been collected over many years by my late grandmother Maud Hurrell. Her younger brother James at the age of 16 joined the Royal Navy and went to HMS Ganges for initial training. I thought it...
I had not done a lot of family research over the last year or so, but, just before Christmas Eileen and I went to see her sister and family. Brother in law Bruce has joined www.ancestry.co.uk and showed me what he had found. I have rejoined their service and found that there is a LOT of information...
Hello out there. My name is Carmel and I am trying to establish a connection between the Hurrell family here in Adelaide, South Australia to the UK. Cannot find any record of Edward Hurrell (GGG) coming here, but he married a Mary Sandwell here in 1862. He was born abt 1836. Cannot find any...

OK, so I've found genes reunited and their links to the 1901 census, plus hatched, matched and despatched. What other resources are there online, especially for earlier than about 1880?

I have recently been trying to find out more about my paternal Grandmother's branch of my family tree. The Hurrell family were obviously keen on photography as I have many photographs, one or two which go back as far back as about 1890. All the family had formal studio portraits which they sent as...
While trying to date some of my old photoraphs, I found this interesting website by Roger Vaughan. He shows a collection of 19th century images which you can compare with your own pictures. The studio styles and fashions can be a huge clue to the date of the picture. Many old prints have studio...
I attended a Family History Fair today - Walter here told me about it, though I didn't spot him there.
It was at Bracknell. I found it quite interesting, though it mainly seemed to be about people trying to make money from those interested in their Family Tree, and I didn't see as...

Most people want to know "where do I start?" when it comes to their family history. Some will see a famous person or royal from history and try and find a connection because they have the same surname. MISTAKE!!! The way to go about it, is to start with oneself. Get a piece of paper & pencil and...
