Sporting Ancestors by Keith Gregson

£ 9.95
   + P&P
Sport, in its many forms, is an important part of British heritage and our family histories are littered with amateur and professional sporting references. As people moved from country to town, sport became fashionable and organised, and our ancestors left us with records of their sporting deeds. Newspaper reports, minute books, club histories, team photographs and even cartoons are all available to the family historian. Discover which sports were played when, where and why. Read example case studies, find out how to begin your own research and learn what resources are available to help you progress. From Victorian prizefighters to Edwardian ladies' archery, from inter-war football teams to the shin-kicking contests of the Cotswold Olimpicks - Sporting Ancestors is the essential guide for those wanting to explore what part sport has played in their national and family history.

KEITH GREGSON taught history in schools for thirty years and now researches and writes for a number of major family history magazines. He is the author of Tracing Your Northern Ancestors and A Viking in the Family.
