Set of 4 handy guides for the price of 3.

Names are key to tracing our family history. Without a surname and a given name, we undoubtedly hit a brick wall. So it is vitally important that we decipher given name abbreviations, and recognise diminutives as well as judge the popularity or rarity of a name.

This series of Handy Guides comes as a set of 4, covering English, Irish Scottish and Welsh given names. Each guide is filled with tables which enable you to find the "very common"and "çommon" male and female names from around the 1700s through to the early 1900s. Each name lists spelling variants as well as diminutives and abbreviations.

These will prove incredibly useful not only when reading old documents or letters which have the names abbreviated, but also to give you clues on alternate spellings of names you could be looking for.
