The Register Booke of the Fourth Classis in the Province of London 1646-59

£ 11.75

Free P&P!

This is a most unusual book. During the English Civil War, Presbyterian ministers and church councils were established in Londons churches. These people had to be proposed and vetted (to ensure that they were sympathetic with the new government!) Furthermore, they had to be seen to be promoting the new government in their sermons, and giving thanks and blessings for the various victories of the time.

This book contains transcripts of the proposals for the new ministers and church councils of each of those churches, plus the records of their support for the government, and letters relating to the lack of the right words being used in their sermons! Wonderful fascinating stuff for the historian of the English Civil War, plus of course, containing lots of information and names suitable for the family historian.

The Home Front 1939-1945: A guide for family historians. - Click for large image
By Robert Pols. 61 pages. ISBN 978-1-906280-27-7
This book aims to help with the dating of army photographs from the second half of the 19th century and the first half of the 20th. It argues that much can be learned from such pictures, even when the regiment can't be identified, and even when the researcher has no pretensions to being a military historian. A head-to-toe examination of uniform and accoutrements identifies possible dating clues, and a separate section gives extra assistance with photos from the two world wars.

TheFamily Historian's Enquire Within - Click for large image
By Janet Few. 293 pages. ISBN 978-1-906280-11-6
Beginning research into your ancestry is at first fairly straight-forward. But with ancestors doubling with each generation as you go backwards the task becomes more difficult. It becomes necessary to know where to find the specialist information you need for your search among a bewildering number of, and often obscure, sources.

This long-awaited new edition, now extensively revised and updated, is a standard reference for family historians. It gives clear and concise information to point them in the right direction. Arranged alphabetically, it contains more than one thousand entries that will give sources, explanations, definitions, dates, addresses, bibliographies, maps and useful websites.

Dr Janet Few is in her fourth decade of local and family history research. She was the critical reader and family history advisor to the Open University for the course 'Family and Community History' and went on to tutor the course. Janet maintains her own one place studies for the North Devon villages of Buckland Brewer, Bucks Mills and Bulkworthy but claims she is not working her way through the alphabet! She is Vice-Chair of the Society for One-Place Studies and lectures regularly on One-Place research.
