Yesterday I discovered an excellent free online resource that I had never found before: FamilySearch Community Trees.

To quote from the home page: Community Trees are genealogies from specific periods and localities that have been linked according to family lineages. Many trees include associated documents and images. Each community tree is a searchable database that allows views of individuals, families, ancestors, and descendants and gives various options for printing.

I suspect that it is only useful for researching gentry (hence my failure to discover it previously as my own background is more humble!). A family member has just bought an old vicarage in Hampshire and I am currently looking into the families of 19th century vicars who lived there.

This resource - at least for the two very extended families I have looked at so far – is much better than any previous family trees I have come across (Ancestry; thePeerage.com), which have often proved unreliable when looked at closely.

Happy hunting!

Thanks for that Ruth. Will have to take a look though it is a site I use very rarely these days.
