We’re now providing an automated news feed to let you know when anything has changed. Basically, when we update the details of a person, or group of people, we issue a news bulletin. Times between updates vary, depending on the amount of research we have to do first, but we’re aiming to get at least one or two a month out.

Do it by email

Subscribe to our email update service to receive automatic updates straight into your inbox.  All you need is an email address.

Site Rebuild

And now for a bit of housekeeping

See the wood and the trees

We publish everything we have in our fabulous trees, so basically if you can’t find it, we don’t have it. With over 20,000 people, 5,000 families, 12,000 sources, and 69,000 image references currently sat in our database, you’ll appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this over the years.

You can see more in the Close Ancestry Trees.
