Ideas & solutions for today’s family history enthusiast

From getting organised to digging deeper, plus having plenty of family tree fun along the way, Helen Tovey’s collection of ancestor projects are very do-able and will give your family history a refreshing boost



We all work really hard gathering clues about our ancestors’ lives, puzzling over those missing details, rejoicing in every fascinating new snippet found about the past. But do you sometimes feel that you could do with a little help with keeping your voluminous findings organised, give yourself the opportunity to focus on a particular aspect of your research, and also get the chance share (even show off!) your family history with the rest of your kin? Here we have 20 very practical projects that will help you do all these things. You most definitely don’t need to do them all – pick and choose a few that appeal and just watch your family history flourish.


Get your family history organised so that you can find what you want, when you want it


1 Your family history files

If you have digital files littering your computer desktop, or paper ones all over your actual desk, don’t despair – good habits are just around the corner.

Your first step is to put them all in an actual folder or computer folder labelled ‘Family history to be sorted’. Then set yourself a goal to spend a specific amount of time each day organising them, and you’ll soon be making headway.
