BOOK - Tracing Your Criminal Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians
By Stephan Wade

Softcover... 36.95 (C$)

Did you have a criminal in the family, an ancestor who was caught on the wrong side of the law? If you have ever had any suspicions about the illicit activities of your relatives, or are fascinated by the history of crime and punishment, this is the book for you

. Stephen Wade’s useful introduction to this fascinating subject will help you discover and investigate the life stories of individuals who had a criminal past. The crimes they committed, the conditions in which they lived, the policing and justice system that dealt with them – all these aspects of criminal history are covered as are the many types of crime they were guilty of – murder, robbery, fraud, sexual offences, poaching, protest and public disorder.

Graphic case studies featuring each type of crime are included, dating from the Georgian period up until the present day. All of these cases are reconstructed using information gleaned from the many sources available to researchers – libraries, archives, books and the internet among them.

Tracing Your Criminal Ancestors is essential reading for anyone who wishes to explore the criminal past and seeks to trace an ancestor who had a criminal record.

What the reviews are saying:
  • This is a fascinating book which provides the reader with an amazing array of potential resources, advice on how to find, access and use them and some very interesting case histories to boot. Crimewatch could learn a lot from this bunch of villains! The Banyan Tree


  • The book is a helpful guide and introduction, which is the aim of this useful, expanding series. Clive Emsley, Who Do You Think You Are Magazine


  • All in all, if your ancestors were criminals, debtors, or drunks, or otherwise involved in a court case in England or Wales, then I strongly recommend this book. Borders Family History Society


  • In all the book is a mine of information and even gives details of various websites and internet resources for those researching online. All through the book are true-life examples of records used in order to help the reader build up a picture of how the structure and justice system of the day worked, by quoting specific examples....fascinating reading. The North Cheshire Family Historian
