Product Description

From the Publisher

Do you know where YOU come from?
Estelle Catlett's book explains the steps that you need to take in order to assemble a full family history. Learn how to consult the Registries of Births, Marriages and Deaths in Great Britain, how to keep your records and cross-reference them, and what you can learn from Census returns, Parish Registers and the Public Record Office.

There is yet more to be found out from wills and probate, monumental inscriptions, old newspapers and other sources.

You can draw up a family tree to display, or you can go further and write up your family history in permanent 'book' form. However far you want to go, this book will take you there or point the direction for further research.

Format: Paperback
Although written by a retired professional genealogist, it is very readable and an excellent introduction to the subject. It covers not only the usual topics of what information is available and from what sources etc., but also the basics of how to keep records, how to store and file all the information you gather, exactly what to look for in old records, etc. There are also precise instructions on how to actually draw up your family tree; all very valuable guidance to beginners to the subject which is often missing in other books.
