BOOK - Tracing Your Georgian Ancestors 1714-1837, A Guide For Family Historians
By John Wintrip
Published by Pen and Sword, Barnsley, 2018

Softcover...32.95 (C$)

The Georgian period 1714 to 1837 was a key stage in our modern history so some understanding of it is essential for family historians who want to push their research back into the eighteenth century and beyond, and John Wintrip's handbook is an invaluable introduction to it. In a sequence of concise, insightful chapters he focuses on those aspects of the period that are particularly relevant to genealogical research and he presents a detailed guide to the variety of sources that readers can consult as they pursue their research.

While fewer sources are available than for more recent history, obstacles in the way of further research can often be overcome through knowledge of a wide range of sources and a greater understanding the historical context, together with the use of sound research techniques. So the author provides not only a historical overview of relevant topics but he also describes the records of the period in detail.

This expert guide to researching the Georgians will open up the field for experienced researchers and for newcomers alike.

Reviews:
  • "I would highly recommend this book to all family historians who take their research seriously and are prepared to go that extra mile to track down their Georgian ancestors. Although I have been researching my own family history for many years, I found many useful snippets of information in this book, and was also reminded of things I had once known but had forgotten." -- Family Historian, UK

  • This new book by John Wintrip is essentially an overview of sources that can be used to trace your ancestors in the Georgian era. This spans the years 1714, the death of Queen Anne, the last Stuart monarch and the succession of King George I, to 1837, the death of King William IV and the accession of Queen Victoria and the start of Civil Registration. It is a great starting point for researchers new to this era of research, putting the era into context of wider events in the UK and the world, and the types of records available. There is a timeline, a very useful glossary and an excellent bibliography and index. A book full of useful snippets for the beginner as well as the more experienced family historian. -- Federation of Family History Societies

  • John Wintrip provides a treasure trove of information on sources available for tracing ancestors in Georgian England. -- Family Tree, June 2018
