about Reseach my past

I personally started looking into my own genealogy over 15 years ago and then moved on to researching for family and friends soon after.  After obtaining formal qualifications and training in genealogy I started Research My Past.

Based just outside Boston, Lincolnshire, England we are located in an area steeped in history and our local archive is a treasure trove of items waiting to be discovered.
