Family Ties in England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland: Sources for Genealogical Research by Judith P. Reid
An aid for the many researchers who come to the Library of Congresss (LC) Reading Room to research family roots in England, Ireland, Scotland, or Wales. LCs collection of local history & genealogical material for the British Isles & Ireland is so large that it ranks second only LCs holdings of material relating to the U.S. In fact, British local historical societies have pursued active publishing programs since the 1700s & have produced hundreds of parish registers & other local records; LC holds many of these publications. Also useful for those researching English, Irish, Scottish, & Welsh genealogy in other large libraries.
