0 Reviews
Deeds are the most abundant type of historical document, surviving in tens of thousands in every record office, yet they are also the most neglected. Amazingly, the first edition of this highly successful book, in 1986, was the first comprehensive guide to the wealth of information that can be gleaned from deeds. This new edition is the essential guide for local and family historians. “Dr. N.W. Alcock's splendid guide to Old Title Deeds ... is a must." Family Tree Magazine
