Review

Praise for the TV Series

'Combining personal quest, social history and autobiography, it proved a triumphant mixture.' Daily Telegraph

Synopsis

To accompany the third series of the award-winning BBC television series, this book gives the amateur genealogist all the tools to trace their ancestors back over six centuries, taking them on a fascinating historical journey into the past. For the first time in a popular genealogy book, author Anton Gill and "Who Do You Think You Are?" family history expert Nick Barratt have created a wonderfully readable book which takes the reader back through time past the usual family tree landmark of 1837, when birth, marriage and death registration were made mandatory, to allow the reader to trace their ancestors back to Tudor times. Much more detailed than the previous tie-ins, this book will explore the history which led to the dispersion of the population, it will look at local genealogy and connect the history of Britain with the people who lived during the times and the records they left.

Whether your 17th-century ancestor was a merchant seamen listed on the muster rolls, or of a trade registered through the Livery guilds of Newcastle, Yorkshire or London; a midwife licensed by the church from medieval times (in case they had to baptise a sick baby at birth); an alehouse owner (victualler) who was licensed from the 1500s onwards; or an afro-Caribbean immigrant from the 1700s, this book fills the gaps in your family tree and gives you the resources to search out your medieval ancestors. This book is a guide to tracing your family tree back for six centuries, into the time of Tudor kings and peasant uprisings, through a fascinating array of historical resources. It is also a fascinating social history of the peoples of the United Kingdom and how they were shaped by the events of their times.
