    DescriptionOf all family history sources, death records are probably the least used by researchers. They are, however, frequently the most revealing of records, giving a far greater insight into our ancestors' lives and personalities than those records created during their lifetime. Celia Heritage leads readers through the various types of death records, showing how they can be found, read and interpreted - and how to glean as much information as possible from them. In many cases they can be used as a starting point for developing your family history research into other equally rewarding areas. This highly readable handbook is packed with useful information and helpful research advice. In addition, a thought-provoking final chapter looks into the repercussions of death - its effects on the surviving members of the family and the fact that a premature death could sometimes affect the family for generations to come.

    Author Information
    Family history has been Celia Heritage's passion since she first began tracing her own family tree as a teenager. After studying at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, she gained a distinction in the Higher Certificate in Genealogy and now runs her own Kent-based company (www.heritagefamilyhistory.co.uk) providing family history research services and courses. She has recently adapted her popular beginners' evening class Building Your Family Tree into an e-course, making it available to students everywhere, and more advanced modules are currently being added. Celia also specializes in tracing living relatives and is often to be heard on BBC local radio.
    Review quote
    Very useful. Helpful case studies throughout the work. These studies provide a great way of illustrating the type of information a given record source can provide. Anyone with UK ancestry will find this book of interest as a very useful guide to exploring the records of death in depth. Society of Australian Geneologists
