Tracing your Roots

BBC

Sally Magnusson presents a series exploring the practice of researching family history, one of the UK's most rapidly growing pastimes. Meeting both experts and amateur genealogists, she discovers the huge range of resources available, and the detective work and lateral thinking sometimes needed to make the most of them. With the right tools, we can not only construct our family trees but also find out how and where our ancestors lived, what they did, and sometimes even how they looked.
