Plus discover your ancestor’s death records with YFT134
Strange as it may sound, the final records that your ancestors left behind are some of the most detailed and enlightening when it comes to discovering more about the lives they led. Whether it’s the basic death certificate or burial register, a will they left, an obituary in a local publication, or their gravestone, there are many avenues you can go down to get an even greater grasp of who your forebears really were. This issue’s introductory guide to death records will set you on the right path.
Elsewhere in this issue we have 26 packed pages of practical advice in our How-to section, which looks at the best websites for finding Nonconformist, Catholic and Jewish family; getting to grips with apprenticeship records; the sources you can use to find out more about those who worked on Britain’s waterways; using Pinterest to share your photographs’ and two articles on World War II, looking at the work of the Royal Northumberland Fusilier in Italy, and how to find out what life was like on the Home Front using local war books.
PLUS, this issue also includes a free 48-page guide to doing your research around the UK. Whether you have ancestors from south England, Yorkshire, The Midlands, Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales, we have you covered with this definitive look at the best archives, libraries and societies you can use to find them.
