Having been researching my tree since around 2001 when records started to become on-line, I am now in the early stages of documenting my family tree, as I seem to be amassing information.
I have built my tree using Ancestry.co.uk and keep synched it offline on Family Tree Maker and also RootsMagic.
There are now so many records available, and along with newspapers that are being digitised, for some of my ancestors there is quite a picture building up.
I have not found a celebrity, a murderer or royal family yet, but it has been an interesting voyage of discovery.
I have also put many of the images onto a gallery.

The Family Tree
I upload a tree every now and again onto this site using RootsMagic, I use Ancestry and Family Tree Maker, check the date to see when it was created.
My surname interests are
Mothers side – Lugg, Heard, Hobbs, Dayman …. Wilson, Freeman, Hendy, Caddy
Father’s side – Hicks, Hillyer, Plant … Brett, Clarke, Everett, Allum, Harding
We seemed to have loads of West Country connections, Cornwall – Gunwalloe area, Devon – Hartland area, Somerset – Taunton,
and also London St Pancras and Holloway, Islington, Essex – Harlow. Amazingly I was born in Harlow where I have found ancestors lived and then moved to London – we didn’t know that we had any connection.
My Husband has Woodruff, Worth/Proctor, Pugh and Pierce as popular surnames.
