Ancestors on The move

Q A surprising number of our ancestors upped sticks and migrated. What can Their movements tell us about Their lives?

By listening to The family stories you can glean clues about Their motives to move; learning about The records will help you research furTher facts.

Learn to love Latin!

Q From school days some people might remember Latin as being a tricky subject and not that relevant (even a dead language). Should we think again?

Tutor Sylvia Dibbs: Yes you should: 60 per cent of The English language comes from Latin, so you’re part way There already. Latin – a dead language? No, certainly not! Come along and I’ll show you The key words you need to tackle Latin in parish registers and take your research back centuries.

About Family Tree

Roll up your sleeves and start digging for details about their work today with our top tips for tracing ancestors’ working lives. Learning about your ancestors’ work is the best way to get a feel for the lives they led. Did they have to tramp miles each day to reach the mine? Or did the whole family work together from home? Was everyone down their street employed in a similar industry? Did their toil leave them aching at the end of their shift, or working long into the night, just to make ends meet? Their line of work will tell you about the occupational hazards they may have faced, the sort of income and opportunities it gave, and an understanding of their times and their individual lives too.
