London Freedom of the City Admission Papers from the LMA

Even if your family isn?t from London, most people have at least one ancestor who followed the Dick Whittington path, travelling to the capital for work and wages.

Now you can find out if your relatives achieved the ultimate success in their chosen profession, with new records at Ancestry.co.uk.

London Freedom of the City Admission Papers, 1681-1925, reveals almost 600,000 of London's citizens who were awarded one of the City?s greatest honours.

From aldermen and constables to merchants and stonemasons, it includes prominent men and women from all walks of life.

In many cases, the privileges that with the Freedom of the City were essential to people's livelihoods.

Freemen could vote in civic elections, drive livestock over London Bridge, and even carry a naked sword in public! Plus, of course, the title gave them an elevated status when dealing with clients and customers.

Find your ancestors in these records, and you?ll discover intimate details about their lives.

You may also find information about the people that taught them their trades - effectively giving them the chance to earn a decent living.

Search the records now.

BBC TV Gene Detectives

On TV at the moment is a program about finding lost family members. Although they look for immediate family, they do touch on research and it's been quite an interesting and emotional program.

Melanie Sykes and gene expert Anthony Adolph present a series that finds relatives who have been missing from a person's life and reunites them. They track down three possible relatives who must undergo a series of intense genealogy tests, as only then can the real relative be identified.

I've watched quite a few now - its on after BBC Breakfast finishes - and have found them interesting.
They talk about where your ancestors come from - and the groupings of DNA that show for instance that group H comes from France...
