Tracing Your Ancestors - Marilyn Yurdan

David & Charles, 1988, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently faded at the spine of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight.

From the cover: “Tracing Your Ancestors offers a completely new approach to the subject of family history — one which is all too often considered dull and dry, or at best, difficult by those who have yet to discover its fascination. Instead of the usual method of working through the sources available to the family historian, Marilyn Yurdan has attempted to deal with the events in the ancestor’s life which actually led to these sources being compiled. These include Birth and Baptism, Work and Play, Parish Life and Death and Burial, instead of concentrating on record offices and repositories.”
