The author's view,
This review is from: Tracing Your Black Country Ancestors (Paperback)
As the author of this work you would expect me to give it 5 stars. After all I wouldn't have sent the manuscript to the publisher if it wasn't just right.
I had assistance and guidance from respected genealogy author Simon Fowler throughout the writing phase of the book. The idea was to include as much help as possible for those who wanted to take their family research beyond the stage of simply collecting names of their ancestors.
Local historians will also benefit from reading this book, I have collected together as many sources and resources on the Black Country as I could cram in. These are ever-changing, in terms possibly of web and archive resources, but part of the fun for me was finding some of the older, out of print works to recommend.
I hope you enjoy the book, I go to it now as a reference guide myself as Icannot possibly remember everything I wrote during 2010 and early 2011.
