Your English Ancestry: A Guide for North Americans was the first book to provide a logical research routine for family historians based in North America. Since the first edition of Your English Ancestry was published in 1993, genealogy has become even more popular, the Internet has become an important tool for many researchers, and there have been significant changes in local government and in the storage of major records in England.
These changes are reflected in this new edition of Your English Ancestry. It contains additional detail on many records, a new chapter introducing early English research (before 1730), and a greatly expanded bibliography.
For every type of record -- civil registration, census, church records, probate, occupation, and local administration -- there are clear explanations of availability and access. Each chapter concludes with a step-by-step summary
