Roots - Tracing Family History

Rotarian Alan Maizels gave a masterclass on tracing family history. He has tracked meticulously 200 years of his family history with origins in Poland. He has learnt to interpret Polish records of births and marriages, and suggests that anyone interested in family history should speak to as many of the older relatives as possible to gain snippets. In recent times, the internet has become a more useful resource. His tips on useful websites are given below.
