Format: Paperback
My great-great grandmother was supposedly born on St Patrick's Day in Dublin...how and why she got from there to Alamosa Co (250 mi from everywhere) before the end of the ninteenth century has been a lingering question of mine for many years. Mr Baxter's book has given me an approach to the question, not to mention a curiously practical guide to the civil and religious meanders of the British Isles' last 1000 years.
He presents the information I need to start... what to expect, what not to expect and where many genealogical goodies are stashed both "over the water" and here not 5 miles from my home, as it turns out. Who knew?
If you are reading this Mr Baxter, thank you so much for the hours and blind alleys you have no doubt saved me from...

Format: Paperback
This was one of the very first books I obtained to learn about UK & Irish research. It's full of the basics of UK research and also describes the unique and peculiar aspects of regional research in the British Isles.
This is a solid starting point for hunting your ancestors from the UK and Ireland. It helpfully provides information about county-level records for all English & Welsh counties.
It remains close at hand on my bookshelf as a well-thumbed reference guide.
