    DescriptionThis guide is for everyone interested in their ancestors whose research has not yet begun, or is in its early stages. It offers exactly what it says on the cover. David Annal introduces all the relevant sources of information in easy steps and most logical sequence, focusing on what you really need to know. The chapters are interwoven with practical features on issues that could crop up during research: for example different spellings of your ancestor's surname. Written with humour and minimum fuss, this is the most accessible guide on the market - and at a size and price to suit any pocket.
