Curious about the Past

I have been meaning to delve into my family's past for years and tonight I was inspired by Annie Lennox on Who Do You Think You Are?.

So I made a start and it's seems my great grandma had 12 children but 4 died, this is so sad, but it amazes me how any woman can lose 4 children and still function properly, poor lady, and it appears she worked as well. I always knew my grandad was an engine driver but it appears he started out as an engine cleaner.

I am going to sign up to one of the historical sites so that I can dig deeper as I am now hooked. Does anyone know which is the best website to join?
