Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “For most of us, our family history has, somewhere along the line, been lost, forgotten, written or buried. And finding it again is a crusade on which an increasing number of people now embark. The question, of course, is: how? This book, the companion to the TV series of the same name, provides you with the tools to answer this question. It expands on the stories in each programme, to delve into the world of genealogy and family history, highlighting the myriad sources of information that can help you follow your ancestral trail. Civil, legal, religious and prison records; census returns; records of immigration and emigration; family history societies and the internet are just some of the resources you will find in this book.”
