I found this book in my local library when they put on a display for Family History researchers and it is a gem.
The historical detail is fascinating and I'm sorry that the title focuses it so much on family history because it should be required reading on any social history course.
The writing is clear and interesting. Despite being full of detail about various acts of Parliament and Poor Laws it is never dry or indigestible. There is plenty about the move from an agricultural to an industrial society and what this means of the poor. AND it manages to give real insight into the rise of the modern Welfare State.
ALL this alongside information for researchers about where and how to access information which can lead to a knowledge of our poorer ancestors.
BUY IT: its a very good read.

This book covers a fairly wide range of topics, but it does not go into great depth on particular sources.
