Getting Started--in English Genealogy

Sarah Freeman, writing for the Yorkshire Post, has produced an informative getting-started-in-genealogy article. It is aimed at the newspaper's English readers, but it therefore give anyone with English ancestry some valuable information.

She covers the basics of getting started (start with yourself and work backward, talk to living relatives, etc), but she also addresses wills, military records, census records, and vital records as they apply specifically to English ancestors.
