Lost Cousins

I came across Lost Cousins a while ago, subscribed to their newsletter but didn’t use their website.  I started using their site over the holidays and am already in touch with a new cousin and have new information to add to my tree!!!

It took me a little while to understand the Lost Cousins service and the premise behind what they’re doing.  It is completely different from any other genealogy service I’d used before.  It is definitely best to read their ‘howto’ first.  You input details of your ancestors who appear in the following census’

  • England and Wales 1841
  • US 1880
  • Canada 1881
  • Scotland 1881
  • England and Wales 1881
  • England and Wales 1911
  • Ireland 1911

and the Lost Cousins service matches your data with other site users.  As I said I’ve made one useful contact already and I haven’t finished inputting all my data.  It’s easy to use once you get the hang of it.  The newsletter is well worth getting too!
