As genealogical records becomes more organised and accessible, so an increasing number
of people find that they are able to trace their ancestors back, not just a few generations
but hundreds of years . Early Modern Genealogy and Medieval Genealogy are companion
volumes which provide a clear and comprehensive account to the records available
between 1066 and 1838. They describe the techniques needed to find and understand
individual documents. With numerous illustrations and practical examples, these books
are an informative and helpful addition to the genealogists' library.
Early Modern Genealogy and Medieval Genealogy
'A splendid idea, splendidly executed, it provides genealogists with solid advice
for pursuing their ancestors beyond 1837, past the 1600s and into the medieval period.
The book is aimed at beginners and more experienced, and offers much to reward both
groups... It's hard to see how a book on this subject could be more informative.'
