Ancestral trails : the complete guide to British genealogy and family history by Mark D Herber( Book )

25 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 1,715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intended for both beginning and experienced genealogists, this guide to tracing British records provides material for navigating archives and a variety of printed sources. Early chapters outline basic steps such as drawing family trees, using census records and searching for birth, marriage, and death certificates. Others outline strategies for organizing research and making use of the Internet and other technology. For experienced genealogists there is detailed information on legal, military, professional-association, and property records. There is extensive information regarding Church of England parish registers, as well as information for tracing Catholic, Jewish, and other nonconformist records. The book is further enhanced by almost 100 illustrations of various records, wills, gravestones, and family photographs."--"Outstanding Reference Sources : the 1999 Selection of New Title", American Libraries, May 1999.

The dictionary of genealogy by Terrick V. H FitzHugh( Book )

7 editions published between 1994 and 1998 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Researching family history is one of the most popular leisure activities throughout the world. The wide variety of documents which survive in this country, and overseas, make it possible for genealogists to unearth many generations of ancestors, some as far back as Domesday Book. They can learn about their ancestors' everyday lives and the area in which they lived. To do this, family historians need to extend their knowledge of archives, the legal system, legislation, law enforcement, professions, religion, education, topography, origins of surnames, migration and much more. For this a reference work is an essential tool. The Dictionary of Genealogy provides a very extensive glossary of all the terms encountered in such research. Illustrations provide an easy recognition of all the relevant documents in English and Latin. Supplementary tables and lists make this the most useful one-volume guide on the market for family historians."--Jacket
