Genes Reunited is the UK's largest family history website. Founded in 2003 as a sister-site to the extremely popular Friends Reunited, it grew rapidly and now has over 10 million members world-wide. The site uses census data in combination with social-networking features to enable members to investigate and discover the history of their ancestors, and possibly find relations that they may have been unaware of. The site has a database of over 750 million names.
There has, in recent years, been an explosion of interest in family origins. In past centuries, people tended to move around less, communities were more settled. It was likely that your ancestors dating back many years lived in the same village in which you were born; there was a sense of rootedness and continuity. With our modern culture of transit and restless wandering we have often lost track of our origins, and our histories. Genes Reunited has helped millions of users rediscover a sense of their place in the passing generations. When you first visit the site and register you are asked to input the family data that you know, the names of your mother and father, for example, and your grandparents as far as you can remember. Using this data, the data added by other users, and that already available in the census records the site allows you to build a picture of your heritage. The interface is very user-friendly and straightforward. In no time you will be presented with a possible family tree, which you can refine with more data. One rather wonderful feature of the site is that it allows you to see the actual census records for the censuses of over 100 years ago. This means that you may be able to see the handwriting of your great-grandfather, written in 1911. At genesreunited.com you will find a very active community of genealogists and ancestor hunters, with extensive forums full of advice, help, and success stories. Before this service discovering your roots was a arduous process of hunting through dusty records, now you can discover your forbears, sometimes in minutes, at the click of a mouse.
