This is simply the names of the people between you and your ancestor – parent, grandparent and so on. You may also enter year of birth, but that is completely optional.
The line of descent is for information purposes only, and no documents are required.
If you know most of the line of descent, but have a difficulty with a specific part, contact our friendly team for advice as we may be able to help. It is not intended that this part of the application should be an unreasonable barrier for people who have an Ancestor Document.
