The trail that an ancestor leaves through the Victorian period and the twentieth century is relatively easy to follow u the records are plentiful, accessible and commonly used. But how do you go back further, into the centuries before the central registration of births, marriages and deaths was introduced in 1837, before the first detailed census records of 1841?

Jonathan OatesAEs clearly written new handbook gives you all the background knowledge you need in order to go into this engrossing area of family history research.
