Sunday brought to a close the UK's biggest genealogy event, it was a brilliant weekend with plenty of family discoveries! We all look forward to seeing you again next year in 2014!
The biggest family history
event...In the world!
The major - and often tragic - role that war played on the life of generations of people in Britain means that you will almost certainly find an ancestor who was caught up in conflict in some way.
From the army to navy and the air force, there is lots of material available online for genealogists who want to learn more about ancestors in the military. The majority of surviving First World War service records are searchable at www.ancestry.co.uk, while the Documents Online service at The National Archives www.thenationalarchives.gov.uk holds a wide range of other records.
If you're hoping to find out more about someone that you think died in the First or Second World War, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website (www.cwgc.org) features an extensive - and free - database that can be searched by details including name, rank, regiment, age, nationality and date of death.
