Not enough hours in the day to spend on your family history research? Don’t despair – read Family Tree Editor Helen Tovey’s excellent time-saving tips in our latest issue. Assistant editor Karen Clare grabs a moment to explain more.

We all lead busy lives and it can sometimes be difficult to dedicate all the hours you’d like to doing your treasured family history research.

Not surprisingly, this rather chaotic approach can feel a bit frantic and disjointed, and you may well find yourself in a Groundhog Day situation – going over old research ground again and again... and again (see how frustrating that can be?!).
