Description
 
History is not just a series of dates and list of monarchs to learn and recite in the classroom. The past is alive, brimming with personality, and filled with the people who make up your family history.

Whilst previous genealogy guides have centred their search around the birth, death and marriage records going back to 1837, 'Trace Your Family History Back to the Tudors' extends its reach by more than 300 years to the time of the Tudors. This book, which has been published to coincide with the third series of television program 'Who Do You Think You Are', gives you expert help and advice, as well as the amazing celebrity stories which are sure to inspire. 

Were your relative around when Anne Boleyn lost her head? Which member of your family found themselves arriving on the shores of a strange land called Britain after months smuggled aboard a ship from the Caribbean? Were your ancestors watching as the capital burnt to the ground in the Great Fire of London?

By exploring areas such as migration, licensing and employment and looking in places and at records that you never thought or, this book helps you to bring to life the world in which your ancestors lived, making sense of exactly who they were and what their lives were really like. An added bonus in this volume is that it includes a directory of the meaning of over 500 surnames.
