The Past Revealed

'Discover Your Dorset Ancestors'

My book 'Discover Your Dorset Ancestors' is aimed at both amateur family historians as well as experienced genealogists who wish to research their background in the county of Dorset. The initial chapters look at different record types, such as newspaper articles, title deeds and manorial records, with explanations as to what you may find, where you can find them and the values and limitations of each record. The latter chapters look at other relevant sources of information, such as Family History Societies, museums and the benefits of visiting the parishes your ancestors once resided in.

The book was positively reviewed in the February 2023 issue of Who Do You Think You Are Magazine, with reviewer Katherine Cobb stating 'This new book is packed with valuable information', 'The book is written in a clear, concise style with lots of tips and advice and has something for everyone' and 'It is one of the most comprehensive books of its type that I have seen for some time and would be a useful addition to anyone's library, whether or not they have Dorset ancestors'.

The book is published by Family History Books and is available to purchase from their website here.
