Mini Tutorials

These mini-tutorials are to show you all about the genealogy resources that are available to the modern-day family detective! Some are free, some require a subscription. Some are easy to use, and some are a little bit more difficult.

All the resources listed here are used by us for family research purposes.



Commonwealth War Graves Commission Print
This free site allows you to search for casualties of both World Wars. It also tells you where to find the individual's memorial. More military information, such as records of Pensions and Medals can be found through Ancestry.co.uk and the National Archives.You can ask Family Detective to include military searches as part of your package (see Research Packages).
 
Using Ancestry.co.uk Print
Subscribing to Ancestry.co.uk provides you with a mine of family history data. You can search through censuses going back to 1841, as well as UK BMD and military records, passenger lists and phone directories. More data is being added all the time. You can buy your subscription yourself, or consider purchasing a Family Detective package and have the work done for you!

 
International Genealogical Index Print
This index (www.familysearch.org) was set up by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and although its purpose is not primarily for family history, it may contain some help information pertaining to the births, marriages and deaths of your ancestors. As with all other indexes, this is not a complete record and there are gaps and missing details, however, it is a free site and definitely worth a look especially if you are trying to trace your family back before 1837.
 
Parish Records Print
Many Parish Records have been put onto microfilm and can be viewed at your local County Record Office. You can expect to find entries from the Parish Church Register as well as Poor Law records, surveys, maps and wills. It is a good idea to phone ahead incase you need to book a place and go with a clear idea of what or who you are looking for rather than getting bogged down in swathes of records with no real focus.
