Ancestry Family History Hints and Tips

 

Register of Burials at St Mary's Church, Welton.

 

In the Welton Library, in the "Historical Records Box", there is a copy of the Register of Burials. This box is kept in the "Staff Room" Beware-check opening hours before travelling!!! I hope to get permission to digitise these, and form a searcheable database on this website.

 

The Lincoln Archives St Rumbold's Street, Lincoln [down Broadgate, turn left just before the TrueVelo Speed Camera (I knew they had some good use!!!)before the pedestrian bridge on the left] is an absolute Aladdin's cave full of every record in the public domain. It includes St Mary's Church burial records [marked or unmarked graves], Parish Council records

If you take a signature and id-eg driving licence-you can get a pass to view records

 

 

A Mr Alan Musgrave, now living in Skipton [sensible fellow!][hence Musgrave's Orchard ?] has methodically and painstakingly transcribed all Welton Parish Coucil records to a searcheable database. I hope to persuade him to allow me to put it on www.welton-village.co.uk and on the PC website for the use of Weltons inhabitants who want to trace their families history.

 

 

The Welton Parish Council have a member who is particularly interested in Ancestry and local Family Histories-they will not tell me his/her name. I suspect Marlene Chapman or Pamela Van Gelderen], but Julie, the Clerk, promises to pass on any requests for initial help.

The absolute key to your research is Google-you really need broadband-it takes an age with dialup!!! The Welton library has free internet "People's Network" at 8MBS

1-Google for Ancestry Family history magazines/books
gives hundreds of links to suitable literature to get you started-I'd suggest "Your Family History" to get started!

 

2-Google for ancestry genealogy software gives dozens of suggestions

 

First bet would be

www.ancestry.co.uk they do a "14 day trial version"-the best single tool. It allows photographs to be inserted

Resize all your folder of photos with MIR-multiple image resize-to thumbnail stamp-sized and to A6 versions automatically. Google for MIR

 

3-Next you might try the "14 day trial version" of rootsmagic-not brilliant, not mandatory-a drawing program eg paint-allows a family tree to be constructed
