Origins links to English Origins (in association with the Society of Genealogists) Scots Origins and Irish Origins. The new search facility is designed specifically for family history research so does not throw up any old reference. The results of tests at the GWG were very encouraging.

The Origins site is clear and straightforward. Apart from the links to the sites listed above there are several articles of interest to read and a useful introduction to tracing your family history.

The search facility does carry a charge: $5 for 24 hours and $15 for 14 days.
