In Search of Your British & Irish Roots
A Complete Guide to Tracing Your English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish Ancestors
by Angus Baxter
Whether you conduct your research in person or by mail, this celebrated manual, now in its fourth edition, will help you find your ancestors in Britain and/or Ireland. Baxter, a noted genealogist, provides detailed instructions for locating records abroad, and shows how easy it is to accomplish by mail or on a vacation trip.
He begins with step-by-step instructions on drawing a family tree, and explains how to use sources close at hand. He explains how the search continues by correspondence with family history societies, record offices, and other listed organizations, before concluding with a possible, perhaps essential, trip to Britain or Ireland.
