The Barnby Family Tree

The basics of Genealogy

Genealogy is the study of information about your ancestors and who you are related to.
When starting to create your own family tree, the first thing is to talk to as many family members as possible. This way you can obtain the crucial first-hand accounts, memories and stories that will set you on your way, especially from older generations.

They can often provide you with details of names, dates, and key family events - although you should never take anything at face value, as it will be your job to investigate family myths. You may uncover skeletons in the cupboard as well - sometimes the most interesting part of your researches.

Don't forget to look through old family correspondence, photos, heirlooms and anything else that may be tucked away in those drawers, attics or cellars. You will be surprised how much information can be extracted from these objects to help identify who your blood relations were; when they were born; when they died; who they married and who their children were.

It is important to try and establish where key figures in your family were from originally, as this will help with your research when you start looking further afield for relevant records.
