Researching family history

Getting started

Before you start tracing your family history it is a good idea to read one of the many books written about family history. We have a selection of these, as well as guides to the location of records elsewhere in the country.

Current issues of Ancestors (the National Archives magazine), Family Tree magazine, and Metropolitan (the journal of the London and North Middlesex Family History Society) are available in the Centre.
