What advice does Bill have for someone researchin­g their tree?


• Try not to accept evidence at face value. Corroborat­e it with other sources, such as records from the General Register Office (GRO) and parish registers. • Look to see if there are any overlappin­g online family trees to check findings and possibly find new images of relatives. • Seek out married women’s maiden names. This helps to identify offspring and confirm they belong to the right family.
