Full Description

Family historian David Hey offers practical guidance on how to trace family origins through the basics of research - how to get started, where to find records, and how to decipher early styles of handwriting. He also uses social history to suggest where to begin this search such as in the networks of kinship and inheritance, and the stability or mobility of certain families. Containing black and white illustrations showing family groups, houses, monuments, archive records, and family trees, this book is aimed at anyone interested in tracing their lineage.
