Hi Everyone

It is only a few weeks to go until this year’s Start Your Family Tree Week!

From Thursday 26 December 2013 to Wednesday 1 January 2014 we will be sharing tips and advice to help people get started in tracing their Family History.

To help make the most of family time this Christmas we will be sharing handy question sheets and family charts to see how much of their tree families can complete together. We will be sharing an introduction to Family History research with useful guides for where to start - and with a planner of daily tips for how to kick start a family tree we’ve made Family History research easy.

Start Your Family Tree Week is a great time to get other family members involved in your own research and to share what you know so far. We will also be running competitions throughout the week with the chance to win some fantastic Family History prizes including a free Genes Reunited subscription which you can give to a family member!

Keep an eye out during Start Your Family Tree Week for helpful advice and daily competitions!
