    DescriptionTracing Your Liverpool Ancestors provides a fascinating insight into everyday life in the Liverpool area over the past four centuries. Mike Royden introduces readers to the wealth of material available on the city's history and its people. In a series of short, informative chapters he describes Liverpool's history through shipping, manufacturing and trade from the original fishing village to the present cosmopolitan metropolis of today. In each chapter he provides the history of a subject including relevant case studies and any further research he has. He then tells the reader the best places to visit to find information for themselves. The subjects that Mike covers in the chapters include the living conditions of people, including poverty and the labouring poor, health and the ravages of disease, the influence of religion and migration, education and the traumatic experience of war. He also shows how the lives of Liverpudlians changed over the centuries and how this is reflected in the records that have survived. Mike Royden is a leading authority of the history of Liverpool. He has been researching and writing for over 30 years and is a popular lecturer on the subject. Mike runs many family history websites and is author of a number of titles such as: Liverpool: Caring for Women, babies in Liverpool- A History of Mill Road Hospital; A History of Liverpool Maternity Hospital, The Women's Hospital, Liverpool and a biography of Edward Rushton.
