4 - 6 days availability
Anthony J Randall looks at the canonical victims of Jack the Ripper and investigates the family background of their paternal and maternal lines. Perhaps their histories reveal the origins of their destiny. Perhaps their family backgrounds hold the seeds to the paths they trod. In this searching investigation many birth, marriage and death certificates, and over two hundred census returns, have been transcribed and presented. This book examines the history and genealogy of the 'canonical' victims to guide the reader from the industrial centres of Staffordshire, the wide marshes of Sussex and the woodlands of the Forest of Dean to the east end of London and the deprivation of Whitechapel.
Anthony J Randall has been engaged in genealogy for over twenty years and has specialized in probate research for the last five years. Interest in the forensic aspects of history and genealogy has led him to take a particular interest in the Whitechapel murders and the family backgrounds of the victims.
