Today I'm so excited to share with you details of a new project I will be working on for the next year (or maybe longer, depending on how I get on!) I will be working with the lovely people at Ancestry.co.uk to research and document my family history and I will be blogging everything along the way!
I have wanted to do this for some time but knew it would be a huge project, my family is quite spread apart, my mum knows little of our family history and I have little or no details past my grandparents. To say this is a mammoth and overwhelming task is an understatement! However the few things I have heard sound mysterious and exciting and I'm ready to find everything out, the good, the bad and the ugly and I will be scrapbooking and documenting everything along the way as well as sharing my tips and tricks so you can follow along with your own family history. I'm a complete beginner, I have only been signed up to Ancestry for around 2 weeks and I have mostly been familiarising myself with how it all works and gathering my starting information. Luckily Ancestry provide a ton of help to get you started!
You can get your own 2 week free trial of Ancestry.co.uk right now on their site - just click here to sign up! (if you aren't in the UK please click through to Ancestry.com)
If you scrapbook your family history, or you decide to join me in this project now, I'd love to see your posts, please leave me your links so I can pop by and check them out.
I can't wait to get started!
