Drawing up your English/Welsh family tree may be a simple matter for many of us just as long as we know where to look for our ancestors. The problem can be that we just don’t know in which of the many genealogical records to go and look for them in. We may have tried the easy and obvious ones, but have we looked everywhere?

If your forebears come from England or Wales then, with a bit of knowledge of the various different record sets and resources that are out there you should be able to easily put your family tree together and add your ancestors to its branches.

Sometimes, however, you may come up against an annoying brick wall in your research. When you can’t find an elusive English or Welsh ancestor, don’t despair as quite often it will be possible to get around this logjam by simply making use of a different research tactic to tease out that oh so difficult to find ancestor that you had thought had seemingly disappeared. Other times you may just need to use one of the many other record sets other than the ones you have been using to discover your ancestor and so get your family tree research back on track.

The best way to discover your ancestors is usually to learn a bit more about all the many records, data research sites and various archives that are available to you. Think about taking a genealogy course such as the one here at the Family History Researcher Academy.
