Nottinghamshire Family History Society Research Help

Tracing your family tree can be fascinating though it can also be a time consuming and complex process.

The first steps are to read an introductory book and to find out as much as possible about your family from relatives.  Nottinghamshire Archives is the main centre for family history research in the county.
Many County Libraries also have a wide range of source material.
