Intermediate Genealogy – Congratulations you have obviously traced your British family history back to 1837. If not may I suggest you take a look at the Genealogy for Beginners page and read through the blog posts listed there first. Having reached this stage you will have put down strong roots for your family tree and I am sure are wanting to learn even more about your ancestral families and their lives. There is some lap-over from the beginner section, but you can read, re-read or ignore as you wish. I wonder what you will find out about your ancestors?
I should point out that the main focus of MadAboutGenealogy is helping you trace your family history online. Most of us are unable to visit archives which are often situated many miles away or even in a different country. However unlike in pre-internet days where you had to write letters and wait and hope for a reply your family history can be researched from home. Many original documents have been digitized by the companies like Ancestry and FindMyPast, they are then indexed and made available by subscription. These subscriptions aren’t that expensive they are less than buying a coffee every day on your way to work! Give up your coffee habit and treat yourself to a years access to hundreds and hundreds of genealogy databases. I know which I would prefer !
There are topics that I have, as yet, to write blog posts on, these are in the pipeline and will be added to this list of suggestions as soon as they go online. If you have any topics you would like covered please don’t hesitate to contact me in the comment box.
Please don’t ignore all the other posts on MadAboutGenealogy dive in and read them all, below is just a suggested list of those articles that intermediate genealogists might find particularly helpful.
