Book Description

February 15, 1998 0719052130 978-0719052132 3rd
Welcomed worldwide on its first publication, this practical and lively guide for the amateur genealogist has now been fully revised and updated. The new material includes a section on medieval genealogy which targets the increasing numbers of family historians who have reached back as far as the sixteenth century and wish to go further. Heraldry is introduced for the first time. There is detail on the location and genealogical content of military records and the records of Poor Law Unions and their workhouses. Details are also included of the latest changes to the location and cost of civil registration sources. A problem-solving manual rather than a simple how-to guide, The family tree detective explains what to do when the usual methods fail and provides invaluable assistance for those without access to London’s vast resources of genealogical information.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "working" book March 1, 2009
By Lisa S
This book is exactly as described. It is not a story about the author's tracing his own genealogy. The author tells you what resources exist and how to find them and use them. Very, very helpful to those with roots in England and are just starting to research them. The few anecdotes included only add to your knowledge. Covers 16th century and forward.
