Tracing Your Pauper Ancestors : A Guide for Family Historians Paperback



Many family historians will come across direct links to ancestors who were affected by poverty.

Yet despite the burgeoning interest in genealogy, the history of pauperism and of poor relief has rarely been written about, and no previous book has provided a guide to documents and records that family researchers can use to their trace their pauper ancestors.

In this accessible and informative introduction, Robert Burlison gives a vivid account of poverty and the poor.

He identifies relevant records, indicates where they can be found, and offers essential advice on how this information can be used to piece together the lives of distant and not so distant relatives.
