Start Your Family Tree Week will run from 26 Dec 2011 to 1 Jan 2012.
Boxing Day is one of the most popular times of the year for people to research their family history. With the family gathered around for the festivities, it’s the perfect time to quiz the older generations on what they remember about the family, and get the youngsters inspired too. With nothing but repeats on telly all week, you’ve got time on your hands to get down to some serious record searching.
With this in mind, Find My Past and Genes Reunited will be taking part in this year’s Start Your Family Tree Week. From Boxing Day 2011 right through to New Year’s Day there’ll be special offers available every day, including free getting-started guides, printable charts, discounts and competitions.
