Personal Ancestral File. Uses GEDCOM files.
Look here http://www.familysearch.org/eng/paf/

I've used this but now use ancestry.co.uk.

There are a number about and your best bet is to go onto one of the free family tree forums and ask the question there.

You need to find one which will allow you to move your family tree information as a gedcom file to another tree maker as you develop your first.

The deal above is a very good deal bearing in mind the 6 months subscription to ancestry.co.uk which is one of the top research sites for those interested in their family history. You can develop your tree online before you need to eventually use the software with the deal.

Good luck. It's a great hobby. .

The point of this deal is that's WAY cheaper than getting 6 months of access to Ancestry themselves - the book/software etc. is just a bonus.

Ancestry is BY FAR the best pay-for Genealogy site - others are cheaper but what's on-offer is nowhere near as good. £30 for 6 months access to it is well worth the cash IMO

I did all the research I could locally and through 'free' sites and had 4 generations of my family down. I then went to Ancestry and within 3 days I was back in the 16th century and with details I just didn't find anywhere else.

The community there is great too - I've run into several distant relations who filled-in more info on the tree for me etc. etc.

If you're serious about researching this stuff, this is the place to do it for sure. Free resources are great but they just don't have the depth of info or the community around them.

You can get a week's free trial at ancestry.co.uk just from the website - you don't have to buy this software. I found that they had a few records dating back OLDER than 1901 from the census, but they had absolutely nothing available between then and now. Try the freebie first, before spending money on software - I found it difficult to research (even though I knew what I was looking for) and eventually gave up.

Thank you - it is between 6pm and 9pm. I think they only added that detail to the site recently!

Also, on the subject of free resources, the 1881 census is free to search by name or address at Findmypast.co.uk all the time, and their fully indexed marriage search is an absolute god send, even if you don't pay to see the full results!

I totally agree, the Ancestry database is fantastic. I think they are also adding the 1911 census shortly.
