Genealogy and the Internet
The Internet is a good source of information if you’re researching your family tree. The increased resources and data now available has led to the increasing popularity of genealogy as a hobby.
It’s also likely that you’ll meet fellow enthusiasts online and you’ll be able to share information and useful links.
However, even though there is much available online these days, there’s also a lot of data and information which isn’t. You may still need to consult books and parish records. See our sources of information section for more information and links to other resources.
