This review is from: The Surnames Handbook: A Guide to Family Name Research in the 21st Century (Paperback)
I think this book is a game-changing book. Researchers in family history can get back really easily now to 1837/1841. Many parish registers and wills are starting to go online, with Wales leading the British Isles at this moment in time. So more and more researchers are getting into medieval family history and the origins of their surnames of interest. DNA testing very often has to be used in parallel to make sure conclusions are justified. This book gives a clear vista of how much material has gone online relating to the ability to research surnames in the medieval period and further forwards in time. It should be acquired by any serious family history researcher interested in the origins of their surnames in the 1700s and further back in time, and contains comprehensive information on how to conduct those investigations. With periodic updating into revised editions as the amount of online information continues to increase, this book could run and run.
