I agree with Peter Shearan; and recommend that you first record everything you can recollect about your ancestors in a systematic way, off-line.

To really get going, you should try to get back to 1880 by this informal approach.

A good starting point is your own Birth Certificate; and similar certificates for your parents. These are usually readily available within the family.

This will help you rationalise your approach.

Then go along to your local Family History Centre, usually known at/to your local library; and seek advice there, TAKING WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE.

At the FHS, you will almost certainly get easy access to other sources such as the 1881 British Census on CD ROM (available from the LDS for 30 UK Pounds).

As you have WEB access, you should try-
www.familysearch.org

Here is a taster of what can be done, all of the TARBROOK entries in the Index to the 1881 British Census-
