Discover Gloucestershire Ancestors

“A work of the highest quality which will not easily be surpassed”
Heather Forbes, County and Diocesan Archivist, Gloucestershire Archives.

The previous book relating specifically to research into Gloucestershire family history was nearly forty years old when I began to think about writing my version of it; it seemed that the time was right to bring the process up to date since much has changed in the intervening years.

After more than 20 years of researching at Gloucestershire Archives, I decided to share my expertise and have written two volumes of Discover Gloucestershire Ancestors, a guide to using the archives, books  that can help you to trace all the basic records as well as many of the lesser known documents that exist locally.

Volume 1 was published on 1st March 2012.  When I began researching the book, I found that there was so much information  to be included that there was too much material for just one book so it has been split into two parts;  Volume 2 of Discover Gloucestershire Ancestors was published in December 2013.
