Some FREE Web sites for Family History Research

The following is from a handout which we use in the Weston-super-Mare Library at the Help Sessions and it has been suggested that other members might find it useful. It was compiled to help people who visit Weston Library and includes reference to the facilities accessible from our local library but these may well be available wherever you live - so ask at your own local library.  

Other useful web site addresses can be found by looking through the Monthly Updates which also include some helpful suggestions.
