Welcomed worldwide on its first publication, this practical and lively guide for the amateur genealogist has now been fully revised and updated. The new material includes a section on medieval genealogy which targets the increasing numbers of family historians who have reached back as far as the sixteenth century and wish to go further. Heraldry is introduced for the first time. There is detail on the location and genealogical content of military records and the records of Poor Law Unions and their workhouses. Details are also included of the latest changes to the location and cost of civil registration sources. A problem-solving manual rather than a simple how-to guide, The family tree detective explains what to do when the usual methods fail and provides invaluable assistance for those without access to Londonís vast resources of genealogical information.
