Searching for names

We have put together a couple of useful guides with lots of tips on how to use the site to search for your relations on the site. The guides can be found here.

As a rule of thumb we would suggest that you keep your search quite broad at first. If you search for a surname and a year of birth you will see more results than if you add in the forename and a place.

If you're really stuck then we suggest you use our Help Clinic. There are some useful tips on how to use the Community section of our site.
