My Mum has done this as a hobby for years, she sometimes writes for UK Family History Magazine. I remember her saying she hits a wall at around the civil war (1600's) as many records were destroyed during. It's not very often she will get back this far but with nobility involved its possible to get back to the dark ages.
I believe she has traced her side of our family to the late 1700's. Before 1837 in the UK official registration didn't exist so all you have to go on are parish records. Some are very good, others aren't.
