About this product
- DescriptionFrom the author of The Family Tree Detective, this guide provides the amateur genealogist or family historian with the skills to research the distribution and history of a surname. Colin Rogers uses a sample of 100 names, many of them common, to follow the migration of people through the centuries. Each of the 100 names is mapped since the Doomsday book in 1086. For those whose name is t among the sample, the book shows how to find out where namesakes live w, how they moved around the country through time, and how the name originated from a placename, a nickname or an occupation. Colin Rogers finishes this work by showing how the distribution of surnames can be studied irrespective of the size of the surrounding population, and reaches some interesting conclusions about which names are more reliable guides to migration since the 14th century.
- Author BiographyColin D. Rogers is a Fellow of the Society of Genealogists and was Hon. General Editor of the Lancashire Parish Register Society for thirty years. He runs a consultancy which specialises in tracing missing beneficiaries for banks and solicitors.
