Tracing Your Ancestors through Death Records

ebook

Of all family history sources, death records are probably the least used by researchers. They are, however, frequently the most revealing of records, giving a far greater insight into our ancestors' lives and personalities than those records created during their lifetime.

Celia Heritage leads readers through the various types of death records, showing how they can be found, read and interpreted – and how to glean as much information as possible from them. In many cases, they can be used as a starting point for developing your family history research into other equally rewarding areas.

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 on the surviving members of the family and the fact that a premature death could sometimes affect the family for generations to come.
