The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding© (TNG) is in many ways similar to RootsMagic or Family Historian. The difference is that you manage and display your family tree on your own website, without needing to generate any static HTML. You can store your information in a database and then give access rights to other people, limiting what they can see and update. TNG creates pages from your database on demand. No surprise, then, that it is very popular with one-name studies.Read more
Many of us have ancestors that lived and worked in Yorkshire. The county has played a significant role in Britain's history. Your ancestors may have been coal miners, workers in the steel or cutlery industry or drawn to the area because of the jobs available in the textile factories.
It isn't always straightforward to know where to look when you want to understand what their lives were like. John Hanson and Sue Gibbons aim to help you in this half-day course. John covers sources for Yorkshire records, including those that are now online. Sue covers the sources you can find in the Society of Genealogists' Library.Read more
