Trace Your Roots

Are you tracing your family tree?  Have you found some links with Lancashire? 

In the past Greater Manchester, Merseyside and parts of Cumbria were all included in the county of Lancashire, so if you find you have roots in the North West you may find that they are in what use to be the county of Lancashire.

Our guide to tracing your roots is designed to start you off on your journey of discovery.  We provide information on the resources available and places to visit that recreate scenes from our past, giving you a real sense of what life was like for your ancestors.

We hope you find this information useful and good luck with your search!
