Tracing Your Ancestors Through Death Records - A Guide for Family Historians by Celia Heritage

£ 12.99
   + P&P
Of all family history sources, death records are probably the least used by researchers. They are, however, frequently the most revealing, giving a far greater insight into our ancestors' lives and personalities than those records created during their lifetime.

Celia Heritage leads readers through the various types of death records, showing how they can be found, read ad interpreted - and how to glean as much information as possible from them. In many cases they can be used as a starting point for developing your family history research into other equally rewarding areas.

This highly readable handbook is packed with useful information and helpful research advice. In addition, a though-provoking final chapter looks into the repercussions of death - its effects on surviving members of the family and the fact that a premature death could sometimes affect the family for generations to come.

*Highly accessible, authoritative guide to death records
*Covers death certificates, burial entries, inquest records, obituaries, wills, gravestones, and other sources
*Packed with information and research advice for family historians
*An essential reference book for anyone undertaking family history research

Tracing Your Servant Ancestors - A Guide for Family Historians by Michelle Higgs

£ 12.99
   + P&P
While there are popular and academic books on servants and domestic service, as well as television dramas and documentaries, little attention has been paid to the sources family historians can use to explore the lives and careers of their servant ancestors. Michelle Higg's accessible and authoritative handbook has been written to serve just this purpose.

Covering the period from the eighteenth century through to the Second World War, her survey gives a fascinating insight into the conditions of domestic service and the experience of those who worked within it. She quotes examples from the sources to show exactly how they can be used to trace individuals. Chapters cover the historical background of domestic service; the employers; the social hierarchy within the servant class; and the recruitment and responsibilities of servants.

A comprehensive account of the available sources - the census, wills, directories, household account, tax and union records, diaries and online sources - provides readers with all the information they need to do their own research. This short, vivid overview will be invaluable to anyone keen to gain a practical understanding of the realities of servants' lives.


*Essential introduction to the history of servants and domestic service
*Describes the servants' world and the conditions they lived and worked in
*Guide to the sources family historians can use to trace servant ancestors
*Extensive bibliography, a round-up of relevant archives and a list of servants' quarters to visit

Tracing Your Trade & Craftsman Ancestors - A Guide for Family Historians by Adele Emm

£ 14.99
   + P&P
Almost all of us have a tradesman or craftsman - a butcher, baker or candlestick maker - somewhere in our ancestry, and Adele Emm's handbook is the perfect guide to finding out about them - about their lives, their work and the world they lived in. She introduces the many trades and crafts, looks at their practices and long traditions, and identifies and explains the many sources you can go to in order to discover more about them and their families.

Chapters cover the guilds, the merchants, shopkeepers, builders, smiths and metalworkers, cordwainers and shoemakers, tailors and dressmakers, coopers, wheelwrights and carriage-makers, and a long list of other trades and crafts. The training and apprenticeships of individuals who worked in these trades and crafts are described, as are their skills and working conditions and the genealogical resources that preserve their history and give an insight into their lives. A chapter covers the general sources that researchers can turn to - the National Archives, the census, newspapers, wills, and websites - and gives advice on how to use them.

Adele Emm's introduction will be fascinating reading for anyone who is researching the social or family history of trades and crafts.


*Accessible introduction for the family historian to the history of trades and crafts

Understanding Documents for Genealogy and Local History by Bruce Durie

£ 14.95
   + P&P
This book details how to find and comprehend documents from 1560 to the 1860s, including wills, testaments, contracts, land records, official records, deeds, and more. The Latin glossary is especially useful for helping translate any Latin documents.

Genealogists and local historians have probably seen every birth, marriage, death and census record available, and are adept at using the internet for research. However, once they have learnt everything they can from them, the next step is reading and understanding older documents. These can be hard to find, are often written in challenging handwriting and use legal and other unfamiliar terms. Some will be in Latin, antiquated English or Scots. Readers need to be able to understand the nature and intent of a range of documents as well as the palaeography (the handwriting) and orthography (the 'shape' of the contents).

In Understanding Documents for Genealogy and Local History, Dr Bruce Durie, the celebrated author of Scottish Genealogy, details how to find and comprehend documents from 1560 to the 1860s - wills, testaments, contracts, indentures and charters, land records (retours, sasines and manorial custumals), personal letters, official records, Church papers, trust dispositions, deeds and others. Also covered are the complexities of dates, numbers, calendars, measurements and money, abbreviations, transcription conventions, letter-forms and glossaries. A Latin primer completes the tool kit the genealogist and family historian will need to further their research.
