Ancestor Detectives enquire within .....


  is …………….

 Latest Updates:
Alcester & District Local History Society Pages are coming!

A genealogical base where members can collaborate, helping and supporting each other as they trace their family trees

  • A place to find tutorials, tips and practical help on aspects of ancestor research
  • A place to find someone to share your interest or befriend you in a strange place 
  • A place to share genealogical success and get help to climb over those ‘brick walls’
  • A place to find, or find a home for, lost family heirlooms and artefact

    Last Updates on GenClub: New look website & improved functions delayed but still coming! 

  • Work is STILL in progress on the new look site and functionality, but I hope that regular visitors have not given up on finding anything new here any time soon.  Sadly techno progress on the new site has ground to a halt as I am having to give my time in another direction again, but if you are a stalwart 'watcher and waiter' then please don't write it off - new research content is in development and projects/ideas are falling off the drawing board!  All I need are another few hours in each day ..............

  • Although there will be few new updates here during the next few months, as it is all taking so long I have decided to begin publishing some of the indexes I've been working on recently, so there will be some new name data appearing here now and then.  I will also post name lists on GenClubGenies Weblog

    Do check back every so often though though, in case we suddenly get a spurt on!


    Site of the Week......... Nothing new for quite a while but in case you are new to Genclub, this section of the site is available from my  blog page, housed offsite, where you can read useful web reviews as and when I write them, add your comments if you wish - and even share your own web finds. It has an RSS feed facility (see the Learning Centre page for an explanation of this), so when I blog I will also be posting notice of new additions and updates you can find here, to help keep you up to date with new developments and content.  Click  GenClubGenies Weblog to visit the reviews.

    Previous web reviews............ (before November 2007) can still be found via the archive links on the
    Learning Centre page

    Elsewhere....... I'm still hoping to find families for my mystery RFC Wireless Detachment airmen, so do see Heirlooms Reunited for a A WW1 puzzle from the RFC (Royal Flying Corps)

    For anyone researching their ancestors in the Lower Arrow Valley area (in and around Alcester, Warwickshire/Worcestershire borders), from the indexes and resources of the Alcester & District Local History Society. 

    Additions on site:

  • Nothing new recently but.............
  • Research Interests - New names and Research Interests for my personal research and the Alcester pages are in preparation

    Coming later in 2009

    For research beginners, a new approach to learning and getting started.... 

    More name indexes linked to internet published and other documents ....

  • New pages as a home for The Alcester District and Local History Society which will include indexes from our own archives and the collections at Warwick Records Office; searchable Monumental Inscriptions; local researchers and their interests; Society research papers and the Local Past journal; photo albums and more.
