British Kings and Queens

This section of HERITAGE BRITAIN is designated to ancestry, family trees and heraldry.

These days more and more people are interested in tracing their ancestry and whilst some people, with time to spare, take on the challenge themselves, there is a great deal of work involved and there are plenty of companies and individuals that specialise in doing just that.

The results are often extremely surprising. You could be a distant relative of Oliver Cromwell, Princess Diana or Ghengis Khan. You may not realise that you are David Beckham's 2nd cousin twice removed, that your Great Aunt Mildred was Lady in Waiting to Queen Victoria or that good old Uncle Ernest was Winston Churchill's favourite barber.

Or more mundanely perhaps you have already discovered that you are directly related to one of Britain's Kings and Queens from bygone years.

If you srcoll down a little you will find some websites and telephone numbers that may help you discover that relative connection.
