Anyone who wants to find out about the history of their house - of their home - needs to read this compact, practical handbook. Whether you live in a manor house or on a planned estate, in a labourer's cottage, a tied house, a Victorian terrace, a twentieth-century council house or a converted warehouse - this is the book for you. In a series of concise, information-filled chapters, Gill Blanchard shows you how to trace the history of your house or flat, how to gain an insight into the lives of the people who lived in it before you, and how to fit it into the wider history of your neighbourhood. A wealth of historical evidence is available in libraries, archives and record offices, in books and online, and this is the ideal introduction to it. Gill Blanchard explores these resources in depth, explains their significance and directs the researcher to the most relevant, and revealing, aspects of them. She makes the research process understandable, accessible and fun, and in the process she demystifies the sometimes obscure language and layout of the documents that researchers will come up against.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The image is an endearing one, peculiarly English in a Agatha Christie sort of way with a curious blend of bluff and intrigue. Gill Blanchard, genial genealogist and relentless researcher, is clearly tickled by the memory of the time she briefly became an uncover house historian. Eastern Daily Press Gill Blanchard is among the most comprehensive, packing a great deal of information into just over 200 pages. Your Family Tree
