Real-life stories

Family history is all about the stories – the tales of our own ancestors’ life experiences, their adventures, triumphs and tragedies. By researching our family trees and tracking down the historic records we can uncover the past, learn about the times that our forebears lived through, and ultimately discover who they were, and where we’ve come from.

Hopefully their inspiring examples will encourage you too to write up your own family history...
