Gumtree was started in London in March 2000, initially as a community site, designed to connect people who were either planning to move, or had just arrived in the city, and needed help getting started with accommodation, employment and social opportunities. Gumtree flourished and was purchased by eBay in May 2005.

Gumtree is now the largest online community in London with sites all over the UK, and is also used by thousands more before they arrive in the UK. It is now London’s largest flat share and jobsite, with visitor numbers doubling every 6 months. It has now expanded to cover stuff to sell, dating and has a throving Forum.

2010 - a curate's egg?

We're well into 2010 now and although Armageddon has been avoided for now, many families and many businesses are definitely feeling the pinch. The weak pound is also making it more expensive to holiday abroard with only the Countries that also have weak currencies such as Egypt and Turkey being reasonably priced. What it does mean is that more and more Britons are holidaying at home this year. Expect the most popular destinations such as Holiday Parks and Seaside resorts to fill up more quickly - you should think about booking earlier to avoid disappointment.

Even so, everyone is cutting back and slashing prices to attract higher numbers of visitors. Keep an eye on these pages for updates and offers. Alternatively, sign up to our Newsletter. We will then let you know as and when the offers become available. Click here to sign up. Happy 2010!

Genealogy and the Internet

One of the big successes of the Internet is the ability to research your Ancestors. Originally this meant using Search engines to dig up snippets of information.

However, more recently, there has been a boom in what is effectively an enormous online jigsaw. Anyone can go to sites such as Genes Reunited (part of the Friends Reunited brand) or, feed in the information that they have discovered so far and the websites will then search for similar patterns in its vast database and let you know about them. This allows you to build up your family tree at a far faster rate than you could by visiting cemeteries, Records Offices and Newspaper archives.

*NEWS* Complete British Phone Books collection

We are pleased to announce that the complete British Phone Book collection from 1880-1984 is now available on Dating back to 1880, the year after the public telephone service was introduced into Great Britain; phone books are really helpful tools for family historians.

Because they are updated so regularly (every 12-18 months from the mid 1900s onwards) phone books are a great companion to Census records for tracing your ancestors' whereabouts. You'll find information on where your ancestors were living. Indeed telephone ownership in itself is highly revealing in establishing class and social prominence of your ancestors too. So, even if you don't find your ancestors listed in the early directories, this in itself is very telling in terms of establishing the social status of your ancestors too.

From the structure of the directories themselves, you'll also be able to get a very rich picture of the areas in which your ancestors were living and for the types of concerns which would of occupied their every day lives. For example, from the very first issue, the changing nature of local and national advertisements (from local milk supplies to major utility suppliers) provide for a fascinating picture of economic and industrial development of Britain. Note: The British Phone Books data 1880 - 1984 is provided by in association with BT and the database contains images of original records.
