Ancestry and Rootsweb with Hugh Watkins

     are you stuck ?
- just mail me

I call it the merry dance between primary sources:-

first your living relatives, with birth and marriage certificates back to 1st July 1837.

From 1901 all the census back to 1841 with parish registers, wills, probates and much much more in the archives - often not online. All the time dancing between sources comparing and recording.

 Take pains and beware of the common errors in genealogy.

 England and Wales Births Marriages and Deaths are  indexed from  1837 to 2004  together with the help of the online  UK Census Collection
 from 1841 to 1901, you can build a substantial family tree

You can use OneWorldTreeSM    which is one big community family tree. - About OneWorldTree

HOW TO start your family history, some notes I wrote for beginners
and I still unreservedly recommend Family Tree Maker 2006 for advanced users and beginners alike.
