Many of us have a curiosity about our family history, and may even have dabbled in research online or through our own family network. But for those of us who want to know what our ancestors were really like, how they lived and what their daily struggles and experiences were, the key often lies in our own county.
In Worcestershire: A Family History Guidebook, professional local genealogist Vanessa Morgan takes us on a fascinating and easy-to-follow journey from deciding to research your Worcestershire ancestors right through to discovering more about how they lived and worked. What influence did industry have in their lives? Who were their employers? What historical events would have affected them? Family history isn't just about names and dates; this book will help you to put the flesh on bones.
