Tracing Your Ancestors in the Public Record Office (Public Record Office Handbooks)

by PublicRecordOffice (Author), Amanda Bevan (Editor)

Synopsis

The British public's hunger to meet their ancestors continues, and this unrivalled guide offers one of the best ways to explore people in the past through the holdings of The National Archives at Kew and the Family Records Centre at Islington. Aimed at researchers on all levels from family historians to academics, "Tracing Your Ancestors" fully explains the institution, the records, and how to use them most effectively. This seventh edition - the first since the Public Record Office became The National Archives - is fully revised to offer even better reference than before, including: updates throughout on topics including the census and records of inheritance, births marriages and deaths of Britons overseas, immigration, the army, merchant seamen, the poor, crime, justice and more; a new text feature showing how each record can be accessed, whether online, as documents, microfilm, etc; a new index to record series; and an additional chapter on accessing other archives.
