Introducing Family History 2nd Edition by Stuart Raymond
Every family has a history. Most of us know something about our parents and grandparents. But there is usually much more information that could be discovered. That information can be fascinating and often explains why things were the way they were in our childhood.
Family history has become much easier in the last few years. Many of the most important sources are now available at the click of a mouse on the internet. However, you need to understand the nature of these sources if you are to trace your family tree. This book explains how to undertake family history research.
The author provides the basic guidance needed to begin your investigation into family history. He explains what sources of information are available, where to find them and how to use them. He tells you how to trace your pedigree and encourages you to understand your ancestors’ lives against the background of the society in which they lived.
How to Start Your Family History (How 2 *t ur Fmly Hstry)
Most family historians regret not having started their research earlier while their grandparents, and even great-grandparents, were still around to provide first-hand knowledge of their ancestors.
This quirky, surprisingly comprehensive, cheerfully-presented and colourful guide will whet the appetite of children from 7 to 70 to discover their forebears, who they were, and how they lived. It is liberally illustrated and also includes puzzles to challenge and entertain.
