Have you ever wondered what your ancestor did on the railway? Or how you go about researching those who were Congregationalists, Presbyterians or who were Jewish? Maybe you have hit a brick wall as you have found that an ancestor has no named father. The Society of Genealogists have produced a series of booklets entitled, �My Ancestor Was�� which will point you in the right direction to get your research off to a flying start.
If you are searching for direction of where to look for London schools or hospitals and their records, or if you are having trouble in tracing births, deaths and marriages that may have happened at sea, the Society of Genealogists will be able to help.
