Genealogy and Family History Research

You can't know where you're going unless you know where you came from.............

Genealogy has become a popular pastime all over the world. It's human nature to wonder where we came from and what our ancestors and their lives were like. What streets did they walk? What kind of work did they do? What struggles did they face?

Are you facing a health challenge and have begun to wonder about your ancestors' medical history? Knowing what illnesses have commonly occurred in your family's past can help you be more informed about lifestyle choices and treatment options.

Many people choose do to the research themselves and are happy to spend years if necessary putting in the time and effort to track down their forebears. They enjoy nothing better than trolling through censuses and civil registration indexes. However, if this isn't you, if you'd like - or need - to know your family history sooner rather than later, you've come to the right place!
