Researching your family tree can be a long and complicated process. If your ancestors emigrated you may find yourself increasingly having to rely on international records which may not be easy to get a hold of, not to mention they may be in a language that you do not understand. If you keep finding yourself at dead ends or otherwise in need of assistance you may want to consider paying a professional researcher to do some of the work for you.
Census records can be an incredibly useful tool when it comes to saving your family history.

They can be especially helpful for researching Scottish and Irish ancestors who were born before the implementation of a civil registration for births, deaths and marriages.
