9 Ask for help

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BRICK WALLS -

Some­times a prob­lem just needs a fresh pair of eyes. Our fo­rum at who do you think you are mag­a­zine. com/ fo­rum is a very easy way to get friendly help from other fam­ily his­to­ri­ans who might come up with that elu­sive so­lu­tion. Other fo­rums (eg the ex­cel­lent Great War Fo­rum at 19141918.in­vi­sion­zone.com/fo­rums) spe­cialise in par­tic­u­lar top­ics, and at­tract ex­perts who are keen to help. Join­ing a fam­ily his­tory so­ci­ety can get you ac­cess to lo­cal ad­vice that may solve your case. You can search for fam­ily his­tory so­ci­eties by lo­ca­tion at the Fed­er­a­tion of Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­eties web­site ( ffhs.org. uk) for Eng­land and Wales or the Scot­tish As­so­ci­a­tion of Fam­ily His­tory So­ci­eties web­site ( safhs.org.uk) for Scot­land. The pro­fes­sional ge­neal­o­gists who help our read­ers via our Q&A pages of­fer an­other op­tion. When sub­mit­ting a query to a fo­rum or a mag­a­zine, make sure you state your prob­lem clearly with all of the nec­es­sary in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing what you know al­ready and any op­tions that you may have ruled out, and why – you don’t want to waste other peo­ple’s time repli­cat­ing your re­search. You can also opt for pro­fes­sional help – try the Reg­is­ter of Qual­i­fied Ge­neal­o­gists ( www.qual­i­fied­ge­neal­o­gists.org), the As­so­ci­a­tion of Ge­neal­o­gists and Re­searchers in Archives ( agra.org. uk), the As­so­ci­a­tion of Pro­fes­sional Ge­neal­o­gists ( ap­gen. org) or the As­so­ci­a­tion of Scot­tish Ge­neal­o­gists and Re­searchers in Archives ( as­gra.co.uk).
