Jenny's Father Copyrighted  image Icon Copyright: BBC

With very little computer experience, Jenny Adams-Barbaro was able to search the internet and find out more about her family and her roots, culminating in her finding family members she didn't even know she had.

It also helped break down geographical and language barriers, proving to be an incredibly versatile and useful medium that has enhanced her life considerably.

Jenny was able to trace a family that had gone through great change. Both her father and her uncle had migrated, to two different parts of the world.

If you'd like to develop an interest in family history, The Open University course Start Writing Family History will be invaluable.
