Welcome to the UK Genealogy Network website.
From here you will be able to directly contact professional genealogists, family history researchers and others who have specialist skills, knowledge or provide products and services that are essential to the family historian.
For the purposes of this website, when looking for a genealogist or family history researcher, the UK consists of England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, together with the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man*. The Administrative Regions into which the UK is divided have changed frequently in recent decades. However this site is structured according to the counties as they were prior to the re-organisation that took place in 1974 (1975 for Scotland). Genealogists and family history researchers based in Ireland are also listed.
*Legally, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are largely self governing and are not part of the United Kingdom.
How this site can help you.
All genealogists and family history researchers listed here will be able to trace your ancestors back to the mid to late 19th century by researching census returns, civil registrations of births, marriages and deaths, along with many other online resources. If you have already traced your ancestors back to pre 1837 (England & Wales) 1855 (Scotland), then the next step will probably be to look for information contained in Parish Registers, wills and probate records, court proceedings, apprenticeships, poor laws, the list can be endless. These and a vast array of other historical documents are held in County Record Offices and other repositories across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom.
The genealogists and family history researchers listed in this Network will have considerable knowledge about what is held in their local record offices and will be able to advise you accordingly. Genealogists are listed under the Counties or Country they operate in. Simply click on County or Country to find the one you need.
