Item description for Family History On The Move: Where Your Ancestors Went and Why (National Archives) by Mark Pearsall & Roger Kershaw...
Family history can be relatively straightforward as long as one's ancestors stayed in the same area. But few families are as static as this, and with mass migration and empire building during the 19th and 20th centuries, most family trees will eventually get to those elusive men and women whose lives took often radical departures. Some settled in new countries or regions of the British Isles, while others arrived in Britain for the first time. This book describes how people have moved into, within, and out of Britain from the 16th century to the present day, and it shows readers which records to consult to track down their mobile ancestors. As ever in this popular series, the chapters are interwoven with practical features on issues that could crop up during research and case studies to illustrate the sources.
