Hello Harry, I visited St Helena in May/June this
year to research
my family history. Surname Thomas. I was able
to trace backward 3
generations but not forward to my generation. It
is very expensive
and you need at least a month if not longer for the
England and time on the Island. Is it worth it? I
minute of my journey. Met many interesting people and
with whom I hope to keep in touch. It may have been
cheaper to pay
someone to research my family history from the London
Archives and I
probably would have got more information but the Island is
and I don't regret one penny spent on the journey, although I
probably won't be able to afford a return visit.
