BOOK - Tracing Your Manchester and Salford Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians
By Sue Wilkes
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK, 2017

Softcover... 34.95 (C$)

For readers with family ties to Manchester and Salford, and researchers delving into the rich history of these cities, this informative, accessible guide will be essential reading and a fascinating source of reference.

Sue Wilkes outlines the social and family history of the region in a series of concise chapters. She discusses the origins of its religious and civic institutions, transport systems and major industries. Important local firms and families are used to illustrate aspects of local heritage, and each section directs the reader towards appropriate resources for their research.

No previous knowledge of genealogy is assumed and in-depth reading on particular topics is recommended. The focus is on records relating to Manchester and Salford, including current districts and townships, and sources for religious and ethnic minorities are covered. A directory of the relevant archives, libraries, academic repositories, databases, societies, websites and places to visit, is a key feature of this practical book.

Reviews:
  • "The book is ideal not just for tracing ancestors, but for anyone researching local history. It is very well organised and even has a section on interesting places to visit. It is easy to use and goes into detail, for example, explaining old-style dates and measurement. There are many good references, including websites and a good directory at the rear. It fills a gap as a useful resource on Salford family and local history and I can thoroughly recommend it." - Salford Link, Summer 2018 - reviewed by Paul Hassall
  • A very useful book that I will refer regularly. Each chapter ends with recommendations for further reading and the appendices list helpful resources, including a timeline of key dates and places to visit. - Family and Community Historical Research Society
  • The latest in Pen and Sword's ground-breaking ancestry series is aimed at the citizens of Manchester and Salford - there is plenty of brilliant advice and suggestions in this perfect book. - Books Monthy, reviewed by Paul Norman
  • In short this is a great 'city' of a book and an absolute must for all historians of the region and anyone with an ancestor who lived in the North West. - WDYTYA? magazine, reviewed by Ruth Symes
