Tracing Your Kent Ancestors : A Guide for Family and Local Historians Hardback
Genealogically and historically, Kent is an important maritime county which has played a prime defensive role in English history.
It is large and diverse and replete with great houses, castles and other family homes, many with their own archives.
It is also a fascinating area of research for family and local historians, and David Wright's handbook is the perfect guide to it.
For thirty-five years he has been working with the various Kent archives, and his extensive experience means he is uniquely well placed to introduce them to other researchers and show how they can be used.
He summarizes the many different classes of Kent records, both national and local.
For the first time he draws together the best of modern indexing and cataloguing along with other long-established sources to produce a balanced and up-to-date overview of Kentish genealogical sources - where to find them, their contents and utility to researchers.
Tracing Your Kent Ancestors is essential reading and reference for newcomers to family history, and it will be a mine of practical information for researchers who have already started to work in the field.
