New to Family History ?
Our Membership Secretary writes :
If you are taking your first steps into family history then you’ll be treading along a very well worn path.
A good place to start is the BBC’s own family history page:
where the general basics can be learned.
However, to many of us, sitting in front of a computer (even if you have access to one) is not the ideal way to get going;
that oft-needed guiding hand is missing – not to mention the personal touch.
Some people can cope with Internet training but even then, before too long, a visit to a Record Office (or other repository of records) is required.
Many people find visiting these for the first time a daunting and cold experience – a visit often taken with trepidation.
But, at the Isle of Wight Family History Society
, help is at hand!
For the cost of a year’s membership (see Become a Member
can avail yourself of that guiding hand where the specifics
of what you
would like to achieve can be discussed with a friendly and experienced family researcher.
Good luck in your family history journey !
