More About the Author

I have written all my life ( or at least since I've been able to write!) and gave up teaching ten years ago to concentrate on writing and music. My main interests are in traditional culture, family history and sport and all these are reflected in the works I've produced. On the family history front I am particularly interested in doing case studies which I hope will be useful to those involved in their own research. In sporting history, I am a passionate believer in producing local histories set in a wider context which will help us understand the broader development of sport.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr Simon D Martin on 24 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback
The book is entertainingly written and gives a good idea of the geography, occupations and daily life of your ancestors who lived in Cumberland, Westmoreland, Northern Lancashire, County Durham and Northumberland.

Best read however once you have already got the basics of research from a basic genealogy text, as otherwise some of the assumptions made by the author about the knowledge of the reader do not quite work out and you will be starting to ask libraries for the wrong thing.

I am certainly still learning new things from this book so it is not just for the novice but the professional.

I would have liked a detailed section on the Northumberland and Durham Parish registers especially as the National Index of Parish Registers volume is now out of print, so I do think a trick may have been missed here.

Not quite as much help as I had hoped but maybe that is not the fault of the book but my elusive ancestors.

Tracing Your Northern Ancestors: A Guide to the North East and Cumbria for the Family Historian
The book has been most useful in my genealogical research and directed me on pathways I hadn't tried before.

Would buy a book from the above booksellers again
