If you were lucky enough to make it to the world’s largest family history event, Who Do You Think You Are? Live at London’s Olympia, you may have met some of the Peopletracer team who were presenting on the ancestryshop stand. As data specialists, they’ve been able to help us provide you with an extremely useful new service, Living Relative Search.

Now when searching for your ancestors, you can also look for lost living relatives, and start reconnecting with your family relations. You might even find that these ‘new’ family members have been conducting a little investigation of their own, and they’re able to pass on the information they’ve gathered about your great-great-grandmother.

Living Relative Search is very user-friendly and you’ll be helped along the way by Digger, the people searcher’s trusty virtual retriever who will quickly return matches to your queries.

There are credit package options to suit your personal search needs, and you can view free search results which won’t cost you anything. Just click here to try out the service today.

If you discover a family member through Living Relative Search and would like to share your story,  please post a comment below or email us directly at areeves@ancestry.co.uk.

Shame you have to pay extra. I was hoping it would be part of an existing Ancestry subscription.
