My Genealogy Hints, Tips and Cheats Mini-Series

Are you new to genealogy or an experienced researcher?

Either way, we can always do with a little bit of help with our research. In this mini-series written for Family Tree Magazine, I have looked at some of the main subscription websites and have put together a series of hints, tips and cheats for each site, that will hopefully make your genealogy searches ‘burst into life’.

These tips cover a variety of areas on each of the sites, hopefully there is something new for every level of researcher. Please let me know if you make a new discovery using one of my tips, I would love to hear from you.

If you have some tips and cheats of your own and want to share them with me, then don’t hesitate to let me know.

The links to each site’s hints, tips and cheats are below;

  1. Hi Paul

    Great post! I’ve only browsed through your Ancestry tips so far but already I’ve seen something I shall take on board. I particularly like the idea of making a separate tree for specific research. My usual method is not to link a person to anyone unless I’m ready, but it’s not exactly infallible and easy to inadvertently activate connections without meaning to. Much better to keep them in a separate tree.

    I shall now go and read what you have to say about Find My Past, which I’m far less familiar with and could definitely do with some more insight!

    Best regards,

    Wendy

  2. Lots of helpful hints, Paul! I’m a big fan of working on multiple trees too. Someone once recommended having separate paternal and maternal works in progress trees where all the little disconnected bits can go until you figure out where they tie in. These are great for figuring out mystery DNA matches.
