Item description for Family History Cultures and Faiths: How your ancestors lived and worshipped by Michael Gandy...
For centuries, the patterns of our ancestors' lives were shaped by traditions of culture and faith, and they left a rich legacy of documents, registers and possessions. This wide-ranging guide shows how to use religious records of life's milestones such as christening, confirmation, marriage and burial - in family history research, drawing on material in The National Archives and elsewhere. It covers diverse faiths - Christianity, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu and others - and suggests the best sources for each, from the earliest records to more recent times. Full of practical advice for all levels of experience, the book offers solutions for common problems and advice on how to find out more. It also explores how and where communities maintained their beliefs, from celebrations and festivals to religious buildings and schools.
