There are so many sources of information about our ancestors and available software to facilitate commencing compiling a family tree that I hesitate to attempt to list them all. A useful starting point is to make an appropriate search in Google and perhaps the following link will help.
The following link was suggested by a class of children in the US and their mentor and tutor after they had enjoyed looking through the genealogy resources on our Local History Group website. They have bookmarked Highampton LHG for their family tree project and hope their suggested web resource will benefit our web visitors which we are sure will be the case; many thanks to them.
