Just read about one side of my family tree, the Doree side, that originated in France. (Oui, la France) It was given to my mother by a distant relation. It spurred me on to find out more about my own family tree. Genes Reunited is where Im starting, just putting in the basics of a family tree at the moment. The 1901 Census of England is also supposed to be a good resource, but looks like you have to pay to find anything more out about people, once you've found their name.... Not sure if Im willing to pay yet (need a job first)... And, not getting anywhere with the address search.... But, Ive always wanted to do it, and it looks like Im making a start!! :)
Wish me luck!
