From the cover: “History is not just a series of dates and a list of monarchs to learn and recite in the classroom. The past is alive, brimming with personality, and filled with the people who make up your family history.
Whilst previous genealogy guides have centred their search around the birth, death and marriage records going back to 1837, Trace Your Family History Back to the Tudors extends its reach by more than 300 years to the time of the Tudors. With expert help and advice, and with the amazing celebrity stories to inspire you, this book helps you to bring your undiscovered past to life.
Were your relatives around when Anne Boleyn lost her head? Which member of your family found themselves arriving on the shores of a strange land called Britain after months smuggled aboard a ship from the Caribbean? Were your ancestors watching as the capital burnt to the ground in the Great Fire of London?
By exploring areas such as migration, licensing and employment and looking in places and at records that you never thought of, this book helps you to bring to life the world in which your ancestors lived, making sense of exactly who they were and what their lives were really like.”
