Format: Hardcover
This book is one of my favorites for understanding family history in the United Kingdom.
It is basically an A through Z dictionary of genealogical terms and concepts commonly encountered in British research. The definitions given are both thorough and entertainingly written. Many include references on where more information on the topic may be obtained or where particular records are held. There are illustrations and photographs every four to five pages showing useful examples of terms defined in the text.
If you don't know an advowson from a wardmote, this dictionary will help you decipher both the quaint and common words used in British family history.

I am new to British genealogy, so this book is very helpful to me because whenever I need help with a certian topic, I just look it up and there's help right there. The explanations under each topic aren't too wordy. They just cut to the main points, I think.

The book itself is made of good quality materials and it seems that it will stand up to my constant page flipping for help!

Also, Amazon offers this book at a great price!

Fantasic book. In the age of the Internet for reference material, this is still a necessary tool for genealogists.
