You might be starting out on your ancestral search or seeking fresh genealogical avenues: here you are offered a wealth of reliable advice covering the archives, the records, the research methods and more. However, this guide goes further than most, recognizing that the process of establshing lines of descent is enriched by explorations of past times. Starting with the twentieth century, David Hey looks down the ages to cover not just establishing our ancestors' names, but also how they lived: their daily experiences, their communities, and their society. You will discover that family history is as much an imaginative journey as a challenge in research." Small crease at bottom corner of pages 265 to 276, slight bump at top of rear hinge, tiny dint on top edge of rear board.
