> Researching Your Family History

There are many sources and records that can help you to find out who your ancestors were, where they lived and what they did. It all can be a bit over whelming at first, knowing where to start and what records are available.

This leaflet produced by the NFHS, maps a path that can be taken to help build your family tree and will show you some of the information and where it can be found. It is not a definitive route as there are many sources available to researchers and not all can be shown, but it will set you well on your road. Note that many of the sources cover a wide timespan.
