It is hard to believe it is Easter already, and the end of the first school term for the year. I'm enjoying the 4 day break though! The last few weeks have been hectic with changes at work, stitching deadlines and 4 days at the National Genealogical Congress (for work - we have a regional local history, collection, but most people who use it are looking for information on their family). It was very interesting. If your family aren't movers and shakers or criminals who make the newspapers it can be very difficult to find information about them, so I was keen to learn of other record sources that might be useful, and where to locate them. Researchers have it much easier these days with more and more records being digitised and made available on the Internet every day.
If you think you're 'not into family history' have you ever heard someone say "the Public Trustee handled the estate and it took a long time and there was nothing left"? That well might happen if the will is not precise, and they have to spend days, weeks or years even, tracing 'all my nieces and nephews' or the rightful benefiiciaries. So that's a good reason to do your family tree, or encourage someone else in the family to do it, so you can leave a copy.
