This pocket book for genealogy, like the �What Date?� series has been developed from my lectures in Family History Research providing a different way of progressing your ancestry UK search. At the end of most lessons, when we have finished with the subject of the day, there would be a family history workshop, where the students air the problems with their research. This enables the entire class to think through problems in genealogy that they may not encounter in their own family history research. With my help, we explore all avenues that might have the missing evidence.
I have based this new genealogy book on that format of question and answer techniques. To keep it to a handy size book that you can keep in your pocket or bag, I do not repeat the advice on each subject. If the format of research or source is the same for a previous subject, I will refer the researcher to that particular advice note, e.g. see Section C, number 8. This book ancestry search will suggest what to do, and where to go, step by step, from the beginning to the older archives.

How to use this book
How to use this new type of book in ancestry search.
Read the �How to begin� section A 1-3� then go to the area that you need, (B-M). Search each archive in turn until the information is found. Although so much genealogy is on-line to make your research easier, it is necessary to understand the systems of archiving and which record came from which depositary especially if you wish to visit the record offices and see the original documents. Section B describes some of the basic records that will help you decide what to do next.
