Superb Guide to studying your surname
on 6 September 2013
This is a superb book that takes the reader through all of the steps needed to trace the origins of your surname and shows how to follow your family history back as far as possible.
Each step is enumerated and explained in full with many links to websites where records are held, or the names and addresses of record offices where the actual record (perhaps even copies of mediaeval documents) can be viewed. It is thrilling to discover incidences of your own surname that can appear in the 1300 or 1400s.
Debbie Kennett's book is the key to a voyage of discovery in how to research - successfully - the history of your own surname.
