First book devoted solely to Kent genealogy
After much anticipation I am delighted to find that Pen & Sword have made a fine job of my "Tracing Your Kent Ancestors" (published 16 May) which now joins their impressive list of county volumes. It's based on 40 years of Kentish research and in it I highlight many of the best collections of county records and how to use them. I've kept it all user-friendly, opening with how I got started in looking into my grandfather's 14 brothers and sisters and developing the Wright family tree, and not omitting my early mistakes and how others might avoid them. There's a good selection of document illustrations to tempt people to get started as well!
