Gill Blanchard's practical and informative guide book will help you to trace your ancestors in the traditional counties of East Anglia - Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk, and Suffolk - and it will give you an insight into their lives.

As well as guiding the researcher to historical records held in all the relevant archives, she explores the wealth of other resources that add the 'flesh to the bones' of our ancestors' lives. She describes how fascinating information can be discovered about the places they lived in and the important historical events they lived through, and she traces the life stories of notable people from all backgrounds who shaped the regions development over the centuries.

Her account highlights the diversity of this part of England but also focuses on its common features and strong sense of identity. It introduces a wide array of research resources that will be revealing for readers who want to find out about their ancestors who lived here.
