Genealogical Resources in English Repositories; By Joy Wade Moulton; 648 pp.; Hardcover; 6.25x9.25; Published: 1988 (1992); ISBN 0944485006; Item # CF3924
Winner of the National Genealogical Society's 1993 Book Award for Excellence in Genealogical Methods and Sources, this book pinpoints the location of original records, microfilm, transcripts, and printed resources in the key record repositories and libraries in England. Two distinct lists of resources are given for most repositories. One includes those items which tie an individual to a specific location. The second includes classes of records and printed materials with information that may provide vital data and/or prove family relationships.
Additional information given for each English county includes changes in the geographical boundaries and administrative jurisdictions since 1888, maps of pre-1974 counties, post-1974 counties, and the post-1965 London boroughs which indicate the location of specific record offices and libraries. Names and addresses of city and county libraries with resources not available in record offices are also given. The location of LDS Family History Centers and the addresses of family history societies within each county complete the list.
Included with each volume is a Supplement to Genealogical Resources in English Repositories and a 1996 Supplement update.
Please note that there have been significant changes in the PRO over the years, and it might be necessary to use Google to locate the exact location of some records listed within this volume.
