These days, the advent of the Internet and digital resources has enabled family historians to carry out much of their initial research online. The '''[[Online Research]]''' pages give an outline of the main resources available and "Hints and Tips" based on how some of the members have carried out their own research online.
 
 
The '''[[World Index Page]]''' is a collection of hundreds of hyperlinks to websites which the members of the Family Tree Forum have found useful. They are categorised by '''Country''' and then by '''County'''. The recommendations range from official County Council websites to small privately run village sites which give you a flavour of the area where your ancestors lived.
 
 
One of the most exciting and enjoyable aids to genealogical research is making contact with others researching the same family as you. The '''[[Surname Directory]]''' is a selection of the surnames being researched by the members of  the Family Tree Forum.
