Tracing Your Nonconformist Ancestors: a guide for Family and Local Historians / Stuart A. Raymond

£ 14.99
   + P&P
We all have nonconformist ancestors. In the mid-nineteenth century, almost half of the population were nonconformists. Family historians need to be aware of the diversity of nonconformity, and of the many sources which ill enable them to trace the activities of nonconformist forebears.

This hand book provides an overview of those sources. It identifies the numerous websites, libraries and archives that are worth consulting. Sources are described in detail, their strengths and weaknesses are pointed out, and the contribution currently being made by the internet is highlighted.

Most denominations are discussed - not just the mainstream Methodists, Quakers, Presbyterians, and Congregationalists, but also obscure sects such as the Muggletonians and Glasites. The religious activities of our nonconformist ancestors tell us a great deal about them, and can provide fascinating insights into their lives.
