Hello, I am Nick Thorne,
At this time there are more people than ever who are wondering
where they came from and what their ancestors did.
Never before has it been possible for the average person, with
just a home connection to the internet, to research their family
history so easily! At least that is what they would have you
Tracing your family tree is billed as being
simpler than ever to do.
Thanks to personal computers and the Internet this can be so. But
while you don't have to go to dusty libraries to make a start on
rooting out your family branches anymore, it's still not as
straightforward as it seems on the Genealogy TV shows, or
the big genealogical websites would have you believe, from their
I see those TV commercials for ancestry look-up-sites and it all
seems like you just click! click! click! and hey presto: instant
information on your great-great grandparents.
Isn't it frustrating when it is not that
I'm a family historian and I have traced my roots back for
hundreds of years in both England and Scotland. I've been
researching for more than nine years and I've had some terrific
success. I've found family members, previously hidden within the
census databases, by using my knowledge of the pitfalls of this
government data collection.
Has your ancestor gone
So many people lose a past family member. Someone who has not
been counted in one census or another, for an unexplained reason.
Perhaps the problem is that the ancestor is there, in the census
data, but has been enumerated under another name different from the
Don't make this easy
Some family tree researchers get frustrated and
plunge in to the data set and spot a name that is the same as an
ancestor of theirs. They then end up latching onto
completely the wrong family tree, because they're not
analyzing the information correctly.
Beginners and intermediate researchers
It's actually quite a common problem, for a lot of amateur family
historians, both at beginners level and even for those intermediate
Many folks will also start by making a big leap across the world
and travel to their family's homeland, without knowing how to
productively spend their time when they get there.
I can show you the best way to break down
these brick walls...
and the tricks that a good genealogist would
use to work their way around the blockade...
to spring over it, or to get under
I was like many of you, when I started
I had seen the British Genealogy documentary television series
Who Do You Think You Are? This was way back in
2004, when it was first broadcast in the United Kingdom.
The programme, featured, as it still does today, a celebrity that
went on a journey to discover their roots. Along the way the celeb
found out about ancestors in their family tree. An incredible eleven
series have been broadcast that regularly attract an audience in
Britain of 6 million viewers!
Ten international adaptations of the show have been produced in
America, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Holland, Ireland,
Norway, Poland and South Africa.
Way back in October 2004 I saw the second episode of the first
series. You see, at that time I wasn't really that interested in the
concept of family history to have even bothered to watch the first
It was here that I saw that it was possible to go online and look
up your family in the 1901 census. At that time this was the latest
that was available for England Wales and I got to thinking that my
grandfather would have been alive at that time, albeit as a young
All that I knew was that his name was Hubert Thorne. But I didn't
know the names of his parents, my great-grandparents... so I asked
my dad what his grandfather was called. I figured that I could
identify the correct Hubert Thorne, when I looked in the online
census, once I had their names from my dad.
My father thought for a moment and said... "Well, we called him
Agh! So no help there then!
I cast my mind back to my own childhood and remembered a kindly
great-aunt called Aunty Winnie. My logic was that I would search for
a Hubert and a Winnie as children in a household in Paignton, Devon,
where I thought the family came from.
But Winnie was in fact Eveline Winifred and so she was enumerated
as Eveline W Thorne in the census... So you see it was not as easy
as it had looked to me in the TV programme. How many of you have
found that, I wonder?
Curious to know how I eventually found the
Well the answer is that I went back to basics! I asked more
members of the family to tell me what they remembered about our
This is the proper way to begin family
research and this is what I show in my weekly
With some family information duly gathered I then did a course.
It cut through the problems, explained some of the tips and tricks
that professional genealogists use and showed me how to get the best
out of the websites and databases out there.
I was taught how to work laterally to find forebears (ancestors
to you and me), I discovered techniques that made it easy to
push over some of my brick walls and from that day on I've
used these tools to advance my own family tree and to help others to
push theirs back several generations.
I have traced one English line to 1700s Devon, and a Scottish
line back to the 1200s - which is very rare indeed! I can't promise
that you will get back that far, as my success with that Scots
branch was because one of my ancestors, several generations back,
came from an aristocratic family and so they feature on a pedigree
that had been completed by the family's genealogists some years
Professional Genealogist adds his
In this series of tutorials, that I have gathered together,
Anthony Adolph, a professional genealogist and
author, has written a report for us on tracing aristocratic
ancestors. He explains how many more of us, than we may think, have
these types of ancestors; even if we are descended from them "on the
wrong side of the blanket"!
There are also contributions from other professional genealogists
and online content providers including Mark Bayley, Head of
Online Content at TheGenealogist.
And, of course, there are those modules written by myself from
the practical experience I've gained of
disentangling my roots and branches.
Over the years I have created and published several different
kinds of tutorials in the British family history niche including a
package about Beginning Family History that got the following review
from Ancestry.co.uk's UK PR Manager Annabel Bernhardt at that
"... will no doubt help lots of people starting out
in family history research."
I have also released a Family History Help Product as an Audio
CD. This is an in-depth Question and Answer Audio CD format had the
following review in a nationally respected family history magazine
"The one-hour tutorial concisely describes the use of
key pre-1837 records, addressing both those that can be found online
and those that will require a trip to a local studies centre or
