Basic Facts about Research in London


SKU: 6 Category:


(Lilian Gibbens)  The large area that most family historians now consider to be London covers parts of the old counties of Essex, Kent, Surrey, Hertfordshire and Middlesex.  However, the reader should bear in mind that until the early part of the 20th century, the outer parts of this area were entirely rural.

This booklet is intended to help you find your ‘London’ ancestors prior to 1900, by guiding you through the complexities of changing boundaries and record offices holdings.

16 pages.  Soft covers.  Reduced price.
