Family History on the Move by Mark Pearsall

Book Description

Family history can be relatively straightforward as long as one's ancestors stayed in the same area. But few families are as static as this, and with mass migration and empire building during the 19th and 20th centuries, most family trees will eventually get to those elusive men and nd women whose lives took often radical departures/ Some settled in new countries or regions of the British Isles, while others arrived in Britain for the first time. This book describes how people have moved into, within and out of Britain from the 16th century to the present day, and it shows readers which records to consult to track down their mobile ancestors. As ever in this popular series, the chapters are interwoven with practical features on issues that could drop up during research and case studies to illustrate the sources.
