Summary: Researching family history is one of the most popular leisure activities throughout the world. The wide variety of documents which survive in this country, and overseas, make it possible for genealogists to unearth many generations of ancestors, some as far back as Domesday Book. They can learn about their ancestors' everyday lives and the area in which they lived. To do this, family historians need to extend their knowledge of archives, the legal system, legislation, law enforcement, professions, religion, education, topography, origins of surnames, migration and much more. For this a reference work is an essential tool. The Dictionary of Genealogy provides a very extensive glossary of all the terms encountered in such research. Illustrations provide an easy recognition of all the relevant documents in English and Latin. Supplementary tables and lists make this the most useful one-volume guide on the market for family historians.
