Share your family's memories
We've been encouraging you to discover your family's memories for the last few days. Now we'd love you to share what you've found on Facebook.
Every Friday this month we'll pick a different area of everyday life. We'd then like all of you to give us your own recollections, any stories that have been passed down by your relatives, and all the older memories you've discovered through our records. We're starting today with occupations.

Most of our Easter traditions are for children — so the holiday makes you think back to your younger days. Do you have fond memories of eating treats and hunting for eggs with your parents and grandparents?
Why not use your time this weekend to discover their own childhood memories? The best places to start are our census records and birth, marriage and death indexes.

You’ll find several generations of many south-west families. If you’re lucky, you’ll also uncover addresses, occupations and even parents’ names.
