Tracing Your Ancestors Through Death Records PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Tracing Your Ancestors Through Death Records free pdf Of all family history sources, death records are frequently the most revealing since they often give a far greater insight into our ancestors' lives and personalities than those records created during their lifetime. Despite this, many researchers are unaware of the treasure trove of information they contain which can prove vital for fleshing out a family tree and locating yet further record sources. Celia Heritage leads readers through all the essential types of death records, showing how they can be found, read and interpreted. This second edition of her best-selling handbook is packed with useful information and helpful research advice. 'This highly readable handbook is packed with useful information and helpful research advice. In addition, a thought-provoking final chapter looks into the repercussions of death - its effects of the surviving members of the family and the fact that a premature death could sometimes affect the family for generations to come.' Kent FHS Journal 'Many family history books cover death records, but in chapters or sections within a larger whole. A book that deals exclusively with the subject in much more depth is therefore very welcome.Of all the life events, death records are the ones most likely to be overlooked by researchers, and the author rightly reminds us that we should pay just as much attention to them as to births and marriages. ..There are useful case studies throughout the book and a good bibliography at the end, along with source notes, useful addresses and an index.' Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine 'This volume looks at the common pitfalls in researching ancestors - you'd think that a death certificate was common throughout our histories, but Celia unveils different types of death records and explains how in some cases they contain far more information than we would expect to find...another vital tool to enable you to get the best out of available records. Superb.' Books Monthly
