Written in 1887 by William Phillimore Watts (W.P.W.) Phillimore, this classic guide to genealogy contains useful information to help research and write a family history. Much of the advice is as relevant now as when the book was first written. Note, it includes a very hand table showing the alphabet in both uppercase and lowercase, in Chancery script, Common Chancery, Court Hand, and Secretary Hand.

A digital version of the whole book in PDF format, and it is also fully searchable. Viewable on any computer using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
