This book is an essential handbook for those researching their ancestry in the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset and the city of Bristol. It begins with an introduction to the identity of 'The West Country', its geography and history over the centuries. It then guides family historians through the wealth of historical records available both online and in archives and libraries in order to add the 'flesh to the bones' of the names of ancestors on their family trees. West Country expert Kirsty Gray highlights fascinating details that can be uncovered about the places where our ancestors lived, their occupations and the distinctive features, identity and character of the West Country itself. She provides case studies of some notable individuals from the counties as well as records of those individuals who never hit the headlines. This practical and informative guide is a 'must have' for readers wishing to find out more about all aspects of life in this area of England.
