My uncle spent some time tracing back the family tree using the records office and so far it goes back to the 1800s. As I was quite interested in it too, I took all of the information and put it into a free "family tree" website that would allow me to keep track of everything. This has been a great help to keep everything tidy and we've even had a couple of matches against other people's trees that they have put in!
The website is/was Kindo.com
but they've now teamed up with MyHeritage.com
but it still provides the same useful online sharing, searching and layout tools all for free.
