Welcome to Day 6 of Start Your Family Tree Week!

Today’s tip

Discover your relatives' stories in our historical British newspapers. The newspapers contain millions of stories from local newspapers from the past. They're fantastic for finding out about the lives your ancestors led and the daily issues that affected them!

Today’s competition

We have six Journals of a Lifetime to give away, courtesy of from you to me. Six lucky winners will be able to choose from a Dear Mum, Dear Dad, Dear Grandma or Dear Grandpa Journal to use to add colour and life to their family tree, capture priceless stories and wonderful memories of those closest to them, and preserve them for future generations! For more information about from you to me please visit their website: http://www.fromyoutome.com/.

For your chance to choose one of these journals, all you need to do is email your answer to the following question to competitions@genesreunited.co.uk with ‘Day 6’ in the subject line:

“For what years can you see UK Electoral Registers on Genes Reunited?”


Have fun finding your family!


P.S. The competition closes at midnight on Sunday 5 January 2014, and the prize winners will be contacted by email by Friday 10 January. Good luck!
