This is a golden age for family history research; tracing an ancestral line back to the mid-19th century is, in most cases, a fairly straightforward process and it can often be done in a matter of hours. The popularity of genealogy as a hobby shows no signs of declining and, thanks to the 21st century revolution in digitisation and indexing, we can now access the most important family history sources online, 24 hours a day, from the comfort of our own homes. The ways in which we are able to interrogate vast databases and extract information from the records are sometimes mind-boggling and would have been unthinkable to researchers from previous generations.
