Who were your ancestors? Where did they live? How did they earn their living? At what age did they marry, and how large were their families? The Oxford Guide to Family History is much more than a guide to the mechanics of constructing a family tree. Written by a leading expert in the field, it suggests ways of broadening your research to look at what life was like for ordinary people down the centuries. Complete with full-colour andblack-and-white illustrations of family groups, houses, monuments, and archive records, it is an authoritative introduction to one of the fastest-growing hobbies in Britain. In addition to practical advice on the basics of research - how to get started and where to find records - David Hey alsomakes available the fruits of the latest scholarship and offers rewarding new lines of enquiry for those wishing to progress to a more advanced stage of research.
