Product Description

Maps for Family and Local History shows how three great land surveys can provide information on ancestral homes, as well as fascinating historical snapshots of specific areas. Covering 1836 to 1943, the Tithe, Valuation Office, and National Farm Surveys provide a wealth of information on rural and urban localities, on dwellings, settlements, and landscapes as well as the status of householders. The text gives the rationale behind the surveys and covers each in detail. Fully updated by map experts from The National Archives, this illustrated guide is the perfect companion to researching those maps.

5.0 out of 5 stars A valuable guide 23 Sept. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this slim volume excellent for guiding me through the mass of information available at The National Archives, and using it I was easily able to locate and order maps and surveys from both the Valuation Office Survey (1910-1915) and the National Farm Survey (1941-1943).

The National Archives would do well to learn from Geraldine Beech and Rose Mitchell how to lead researchers to their goal in a clear and digestible manner.
