Review

The trail that an ancestor leaves through the Victorian period and the twentieth century is relatively easy to follow - the records are plentiful, accessible and commonly used. But how do you go back further, into the centuries before the central registration of births, marriages and deaths was introduced in 1837, before the first detailed census records of 1841? How can you trace a family line back through the early modern period and perhaps into the Middle Ages? Jonathan Oates's clearly written handbook gives you all the background knowledge you need in order to go into this engrossing area of family history research. This handbook is an essential introduction for anyone who is keen to take their family history research back into the more distant past. - Antiques Diary Part of Pen & Sword's reliable 'guides for family historians' series, this new title fills you in on how to trace your ancestors beyond the start of civil registration in 1837. Author Jonathan Oates describes the records of use to genealogists in the medieval and early modern period to guide you even further back into the past. This is a comprehensive and easily-digestible handbook that will undoubtedly open up fascinating new avenues of research in your family history quest.- Family Tree
