Publisher's Description

'Brick walls' occur everywhere and all the time in genealogy research. Solving Genealogy Problems will help you make real progress through difficult areas and dead ends. With this book you can take your British Isles family tree back further.

Solving Genealogy Problems will:
- Help you find new records, including unusual ones genealogists often don't know about, and make the best use of them when you do find them.
- Suggest new ideas for looking at old problems.
- Give additional ideas on using the census
- Further ideas on using census substitutes when the census doesn't have the answers.
- Suggest ways of finding elusive births, marriages and deaths
- and then of making progress anyway, even when you absolutely cannot find them.

This book covers all periods of British Isles genealogy. The new frontiers of genealogy are considered for the hope they give on even the most intractable research block, and the possibility they allow of building even the most difficult of family trees.
