It is essential to understand exactly who and what information you are looking for when you undertake a family history research project. As with any family history research it is important to begin from what you know today and work backward through a solid trail of evidence.

There are a number of research tools available for those searching English and Welsh ancestors from a distance. This introductory guide is designed to take you through various steps of the research process, introduce you to the tools available, and the record sources that will provide the evidence you need to take the next step in the search for your ancestors.
