Family History Help

We're a volunteer-led organisation with a very small support staff, so we're unable to help with specific family history research. However, we have some links and advice you may find helpful on our Links page:

We also have an engaged community of experienced FreeUKGEN volunteers and other genealogy researchers in our projects' Facebook groups who can help you with your family history research.


We also recommend GENUKI for genealogy resources, and seeking out the Family History Societies pertaining to the places your ancestors lived.
