Family history is only one part of your personal heritage - there's more to your background than just who your ancestors were.

'Nick Barratt's Guide to  Your Ancestors Lives' differs from most books on the market as it places this process on an equal footing with the social history that surrounds each generation, as much as the technical know-how on which records to examine, and where.

Nick's book takes you on a unique journey back in time, examining the houses, streets, communities and ways of life that shaped the world around us, and in particular the precise circumstances that made us who we are today.

Furthermore, this book not only explains how and where to undertake this personal detective process - it shows you how to organise and shape your findings, and create your own personal archive using the latest technology and online resources, and how to add your store of knowledge to the emerging
social networks that allow us to create a People's Archive and tell the forgotten story of the past that never makes it into the textbooks.
