Learn Where To Find Records and Resources to Build Your English/Welsh Family Tree.


Hello, I am Nick Thorne,

More and more people than ever are wondering where they came from and what their ancestors did.

Never before has it been possible for the average person, with just a connection to the internet, to research their family history so easily! At least that is what they would have you believe.

Tracing your family tree is billed as being simpler than ever to do.

Thanks to personal computers, tablets and smart phones this can be so. But while you don't have to go to dusty libraries to make a start on rooting out your family branches anymore, it's still not always as straightforward as it seems on the Genealogy TV shows, or how the big genealogical websites would have you believe, from their advertising.

If you are one of those people wondering where you forebears came from and what they did, then you too may have asked why you can't find some of your ancestors in the records.

Perhaps you have already concentrated on all the easy connections in your family tree leaving all the frustrating ones to one side?

In my own research I continuously came up against all sorts of ancestor brick walls; but in the early days I didn't know how to get past them. I missed out on a lot of leads that I could have found and followed sooner if I had known where to look.

Eventually I realised that I needed to find out just how to untangle the elusive roots and branches. So I set out to learn more about the subject of family history.

I've now set it all down in a collection of weekly downloadable guides that you can follow in your own time and at your own speed.

I call it the Family History Researcher Guides Membership Site...
