be interesting to find who has got back the furthest in their family tree andany major surprises eg Royalty, pirates

Mine on one side possibly back to early 1700s in Berkshire
another only to 1890s up to now
no major surprises only a great great great uncle who set up the first photography shops for Fox Talbot and was the 1st mayor of St Kilda Aus

I have been researching my family tree for about 2 years now. The furthest I have gone back is my paternal grandmothers line to 1532 in France. This is via USA and before that Canada. I found in that family line that I am related to Celine Dion, Madonna and Hilary Clinton (who are all also related to each other). Each of them is either a 10th or 11th cousin, Celine Dion is 1 level removed aswell.

I got back to 1769 Guernsey on my mums side my dads were irish which are too hard to trace due to the records office burning down no one famous but no paupers either.

just post for help
I can look up 1881 census others have access to later or earlier census
Ask your mums/grandparents/dads for names of their parents/grandparents and places NOW before it gets too late and then you wish you had done

your on your way then if you can get info off him parents grandparents and where born/lived
Now you can research thru censuses 1911 and down
BMD for info for certificates post a family tree on various
genealogy sites and other researchers may recognise names and places that are in their trees and may take you a bit further
Latterday saints a good site to have a gander at

I can go back to about 1800 (ish) on my dad's side of the family although i have not tried to reserch my family History, and legend has it that one of my relations was a vicker in the 1750's.
I am also lucky to have a surname that can be traced back to the 900's in a part of the british isles !,

One half of my lot came down from Hartlepool to Goole with the shipyard. The other half moved from Dyserth in 1735 to Minera, with the lead mining.

I get back to 1558 on my mother's side & 1792 on father's. The interesting thing is that both families have Shropshire roots. The curious thing is that my wife & I came to Shropshire in 1966 by accident really. We lived in London; we were on holiday & the car broke down. While we were waiting for it to be fixed, we found our perfect house near Church Stretton. We later discovered that my wife's great great grandfather had been a wine merchant in Ludlow, so we both have roots here.
