    I've been doing mine for 24 years.

    When I started it was all about trips to London and Microfilm readers, detective work and waiting for the postman to come with the latest certificate.

    Now its all about the internet and instant results.

    I helped a friend get started with how to trace her tree last month. She got back to me recently and said she had got in touch with someone on Genesreunited who had 'done the tree back to 17something' so she didn't need to do much more!

    I do like using the internet but I'm glad I did it the hard way as well.

    I really recommend genesreunited and thegenealogist.co.uk.

    Furthest back so far is 1729.

    Been doing mine for about 15 years off and on. It's a fascinating hobby which I would recommend to anyone. I like finding living relatives however distant. The internet has been a boon to genealogy over the last 10 years. My main tip is to keep the same email address. It's surprising how many contact me years after I've left a message on some genealogy forum etc

    I've been pretty hopeless at it to be honest but then a knight in shining armour helped me out greatly to the point i'm getting well into it and saw one of my uncles who's in his 70s today to show him where I was up to and to ask him some searching questions. Thanks again if you're looking in

    Done a bit of mine. Can be a bit exasperating though....It is definitely rewarding when you finally get a result. Got back to 1821 on one side...I hate it though when you get on some of those sites that show a sign Suppose they have to make their money...
