Leading family historian David Hey offers practical guidance on how to trace family origins on the basics of research -- how to get started, where to find records, and how to decipher early styles of handwriting. He also uses social history to suggest where to begin this search: such as in the networks of kinship and inheritance, and the stability or mobility of certain families. Containing more than a hundred black and white illustrations showing family groups, houses, monuments, archive records, and family trees, this book is essential reading for those interested in tracing their lineage. 'remarkable value for its combination of social history, gracefully told, and lucid instruction' Antonia Fraser 'marvellous book' Daily Mail 'a thoughtful and thought-provoking book, finely researched and well written.' Family Tree Magazine 'This book is an invaluable how-to-do-it guide'
