    How do I trace my family tree ? any sites out there that are free???

    I know about Genes Reunited but someone on Hot ukdeals said you had to pay for searches. I remember reading it once a few weeks ago. Tried to trace the thread but had no luck.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated, ta loads.

    Tintern1981 you are a star, I will start there thanks loads

    Genes Reunited is only £9.95 for 6 months and money well spent. Found my half sister through this and also helped my sis in law find her family (she was adopted). I have a huge tree now and have located family members in the USA and the Caribbean.

    don't forget, you get 25% back via Quidco for Genes Reunited, good luck with your search,

    for the poorer HDUKer's amongst us, Publisher or Powerpoint is fine. In fact, Ms Word would suffice to a point

    Had the same problem as I started tracing after most of my grandparents had died plus for some reason not all the family wanted to talk about their life in Jamaica. A lot of our family records also got destroyed in hurricane Gilbert but at least I'm leaving a legacy for my nephews and nieces

    You're going to uncover a big dirty secret choc, you know that don't you :w00t: Same with viper, lol.

    Some people wish they'd never started
