Family Detective by Nick Barratt
Book DescriptionThe market for family history has never been stronger. The phenomenally successful television series "Who Do You Think You Are?" made many people consider the subject for the first time. Nick Barratt, the man behind the interactive strand of the series, now brings his expertise to this practical, lively and well-researched book, which will open the door to the fascinating world of genealogy. Accessible and clearly presented, and underpinned by a wealth of knowledge and experience, this book gives you everything you need to know to get cracking. From how to get started (talking to relatives, gathering clues, assembling a family tree), through to accessing and understanding and understanding the main sources (certificates, censes, probate and family registers), to how to flesh out your family tree, including tracing immigrant and emigrant relatives, tracking down military ancestors and how to cope if you uncover family secrets. Throughout the book, there are case histories and real-life examples to help and inspire every reader.

Greater London, Paperback (September 2014)
London's suburbs may stretch for well over 600 square miles, but in historical accounts of the capital they tend to take something of a back seat. This title shows how the tiny settlements that grew up in the Thames Valley gradually developed, and how they were shaped by their proximity to the city.

He concludes by looking at the impact on those who escaped, and what became of them in the ensuing years.
