This version of the Moving Here site was archived by The National Archives in 2013. We are no longer updating this website. You can search this using the Web Archive advanced Search.

The Tracing Your Roots gallery will help and guide you through the many different ways you can find out when and how your family first came to England and where they settled.

Collected together here for the first time are documents, photographs, sound and film clips selected by curators and researchers at archives and museums all over England. These incredible fragments of history are presented by specialist writers and historians and available for you to download.

For each community, in easy to follow steps, the gallery will:

  • Show you how and where to get started to look for information on your family.
  • Give you connections to useful websites around the world to help in your search for your ancestors.
  • Give you real case studies to learn from and follow.
  • Explain the online Moving Here catalogue and highlight the records you can search to look for a particular member of your family.
