Project Description

Throughout the last five hundred years, many individuals have contributed to the creation of the wealth of records that we as genealogists turn to, in our quest to trace our family history in the UK. Their reasons for initiating the collections of information were usually politically or religiously motivated, rather than stemming from a desire to leave an ancestral legacy for the generations to come. But whatever the rationality behind the archives, we owe these great faces of family history a debt of gratitude for leaving us a trail to follow.
