Family history is, of course, highly dependent on census and BMD records. But many researchers recognise that there are many other kinds of archives that can often solve problems and provide much more detailed information. The interests of family researchers and local historians therefore overlap to a considerable degree, and there is a huge potential for more sharing of information and research methods.
