Forced marriage, murder and student revelry have always been on the agenda in Parliament it seems - even in the 14th century.

In the parliament of 1305, the University of Oxford was angry about frolics between students and prostitutes. It petitioned the Crown for the right to arrest prostitutes who had already been convicted of plying their trade to the students of the university and evicted from the town, but who were now said to be taking up residence over the river and slipping into the town at night to find drunk and willing students.

DNA tests do not grant inclusion to Confucius family tree

Chinese people desperate to prove they are descendants of Confucius have been told that DNA tests will not be included in the current compilation of the family tree of China's first teacher of philosophy.

Kong Deyong, head of the association of compilation work for Confucius Genealogy, announced the exclusion earlier this week.

The thoughts of Confucius (551-479 BC), a philosopher, educator and founder of Confucianism in the late Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC), are believed to still hold sway over Chinese society. More...


‘We Churchills die at forty,’ said Winston in 1908, ‘and I want to put something more on the slate before then.’ By the time he died in 1965, the slate was full.

Census Records

A census is an official enumeration of the population in a particular area. In addition to counting the inhabitants of an area, the census generally collects other vital information, such as names, ages, citizenship status, and ethnic background. Each census can prove to be invaluable in painting a portrait of a family at a particular place and time.

Birth Marriage & Death records -

Civil vital records—for Births, Marriage and Deaths —mark the milestones of our lives, and are the foundation of family history research. Chronicling the personal moments of our lives through the objective perspective of the public record, vital records can offer details often found through no other genealogical resource. They can be useful in proving or disproving other sources, give you a more complete picture of your ancestor, help you distinguish between two people with the same name, and help you find clues to earlier life events.

With these records, you can gain access to information regarding your ancestor's lives, such as the locations and causes of their deaths, the names of children or parents, their wedding dates and locations, and the many other details that help us record and remember the important moments in the lives of our families.
