The subject of how to go about genealogy research is not a modern phenomenon. The Victorians were particularly intrigued by family history much as we are today. Some of the authors were undoubted experts on the subject, and, the methods, records and sources that they describe are just as applicable today as they were in the 1800s. They include a great number of resources described in great detail, many of which we tend to ignore today. Perhaps we just didn’t know that they existed?
Books such as these widen your scope for research very considerably indeed!
