Find your military ancestors with YFT133
Plus find Scottish kin and learn how to trace your family’s occupations
Whether you have ancestors who were at the forefront of expanding the British Empire in India, holding onto the cape of Africa during the bloody Anglo-Boer War, or fighting through the horrendous conditions of the trenches on the Western Front, we have a range of articles for you to find out more about the experiences of your ancestors.
The best tool for tracking down family in the military, the UK and abroad is The National Archives. The countless number of historical records and documents make it an invaluable goldmine for family historians, and whether you want to visit in person or search its digital collections online, we’ve got you covered with our ultimate guide.
Those of you with family north of the border are also in luck as we have expert tips on how to get started with finding Scottish ancestors before the census using the amazingly detailed parish records. Elsewhere you’ll find a guide to tracing your roots in the Dyfed region of West Wales; how to find out more about an ancestor’s occupation, including an in-depth look at the lives of dockworkers; and find out your kin’s lives were made better using the records left by Medical Officers of Health.
