Create an enduring family tree in YourTrees
Purpose of this event
Do you wish that your grandparents had kept a family history? You can ensure your grandchildren have easy access to their backstory. How durable and easily interpreted is your current family archive?

As one attendee put it:
” I recently loaded my data to YourTrees and have found it very useful in showing up mistakes/anomalies in my original. It offers reporting on some fields which are hard to get to on my desktop program. I thought I would let you know that it has already helped.”

Paul BarrettBerkshire FHS Webmaster
Paul is a retired software product manager, with forty years experience in the high tech sector.
He’s been involved in family history for twenty-five years and five years ago set up his own family history website. In 2019 he became the Berkshire FHS webmaster. Running his own site also gave him an insight into the necessity for not only capturing our ancestors’ stories but also being highly disciplined about recording the facts behind them.
While his ancestors have roots in the agricultural villages of what was north Berkshire (now part of Oxfordshire) and Wiltshire, and his wife’s from west Surrey and Nottingham, they now live in Northumberland, a few miles south of Hadrian’s Wall.
