Not a great website for tracing family history!, but if you want your photographs bought back to life/re-printed and saved safely on disc, .. go to photographwit.com!!!!

The following site has quite a lot of gravestones that have been transcribed. some areas are better served than others, but worth a try.

The following site is a company offering professional genealogy research packages:

[link=http://familydetective.co.uk/]http://familydetective.co.uk[/link]

I don't know if the services are of any use to forum users, but it's certainly a nicely laid out site!

I have found Ancestry.co.uk very helpful and have made several good contacts through it, which has helped with sharing and confirming information. I have also found family trees going back centuries and, although I have put some of these details into my tree, try to back the information up with certificates and copies from Parish Records.

I also use Google a lot - by putting in place names and surnames, and have been able to find out a lot of information this way, although using Google is very time consuming.

I have recently found http://www.familyhistoryonline.co.uk helpful for tracing burials and have found information that I have been looking for for the last couple of years.

If you have ancestors in the Medway District of Kent, http://cityark.medway.gov.uk is very useful. This was recommended in the WDYTYA? magazine so thanks for that Editor.
