October 2011 - Estelle's Blog
Welcome to the new Genes Reunited blog!
- We regularly add blogs covering a variety of topics. You can add your own comments at the bottom.
- The Genes Reunited Team will be writing blogs and keeping you up to date with changes happening on the site.
- In the future we hope to have guest bloggers that will be able to give you tips and advice as to how to trace your family history.
- The blogs will have various privacy settings, so that you can choose who you share your blog with.
As a way of saying thank you to our subscribers, we have launched Genes Extras. You'll find exclusive competitions and discounts on family history magazines, days out and much more.
I am Estelle, the Genes product assistant, and I'm here to tell you about the new records we have just added to the site. We now have 35 million Parish Records which mean you can search baptisms, marriages and burials as far back as 1538. Until now our earliest UK records were the birth, marriage and death indexes that began in 1837.
