IT'S TIME TO PLANT THE SEED
Put in writing everything you can remember about your family.
Visit all your elderly relatives and have a chat with them.
Take family photographs with you as these may jog a memory somewhere along the line.
If you can, draw up a list of questions to which you would like answers, take these with you when you visit relatives and friends.
Donít forget the people who lived next door Ė they also might know something of interest.
Go through all the family papers such as the Bible, old letters, certificates of births, marriages and deaths and any other of the many documents that record the history of your family.
As you write up the notes keep the relatives and friends informed of your progress by giving them a copy as this might also jog a memory.
Take copies of old letters and photographs if possible.
Draw up the family tree using the information gathered so far.
Use the plain side of spare wallpaper for the rough copy.
Give a copy to anyone that is interested, family members and friends as it may help them to recall something for you.
Visit the ancestral homes and photograph them along with the church, school etc.
Are there any gravestones in the churchyard or cemetery? Copy out the inscription.
From here the next places to visit are the Archives and the Reference Library. Between these two they will hold almost every document available.
