Review

Reviews for Collins Tracing Your Family History:

‘Definitive advice for anyone interested in tracing their family’s past.’ Family Tree Magazine.

‘…the information is superb.’ Ancestors.

‘The overriding feeling about this book is that it is bending over backwards to try and assist researchers, providing answers by almost pre-empting the questions.’ Your Family Tree.

‘Enthusiasm and quirky knowledge (that) makes this book stand out.’ Family History Monthly.

From the Inside Flap

A hero of the British-Zulu wars, awarded the Victoria Cross for his bravery...a pioneering Indian prime minister of the province of Bhavnagar...Princess Anne's husband's descent from a Jewish merchant of Venice...a 16th-century peasant woman, executed for bewitching a man and his pigs...

These are just some of the extraordinary stories that Anthony Adolph has unearthed in his years of researching family histories. What mysteries does your family's past hold? 'Collins Tracing Your Family History' helps you find out.

From parish records to marriage certificates, from wills to military service records, there is a vast amount of information about your ancestors just waiting to be discovered. Recognising the important influence of the Internet in modern genealogical research, this book tells you how to combine the latest technology with the most proven research techniques as you delve deeper into your heritage.

The guide is perfect for the novice family historian, beginning with the very basics of genealogical research. It will also prove invaluable for those who have made some progress but find their trail has gone cold or want to take their research further - from old county maps to naturalisation records, Anthony Adolph has suggestions for a wealth of more unexpected sources to unblock your search. No matter how deep you would like to dig into your family's past, he leads the way with informative guidance and fascinating case studies.

From Wales to India, Ireland to Jamaica, wherever your family hails from, 'Collins Tracing Your Family History' gives you the expert advice and tips you need to make your search efficient, fruitful - and fascinating. In short, this is the only guide you need to make your family's past come to life. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
