This is a comprehensive, practical guide for the amateur genealogist with English or Welsh ancestors. Welcomed worldwide on its first publication, this practical and lively guide for the amateur genealogist has now been fully revised and updated. The new material includes a section on medieval genealogy which targets family historians who have reached back as far as the sixteenth century and wish to go further. The Family Tree Detective explains what to do when the usual methods fail and provides invaluable assistance for those without access to London's vast resources.
