    schema:reviewBody ""This new book introduces the reader to the enormous range of documents available for the local and family historian, many of them underused, indifferently catalogued and some possibly unknown beyond groups of academic and other specialist researchers. The authors convey their own enthusiasm for the material and explain what it contains and the information it can reveal. They concentrate on English and Welsh archives, but also include some discussion of records in Scotland and Ireland. Their unique background - working for The National Archives and for local record offices - gives them an unrivalled knowledge of archival sources, and both of them have used much of this material in their own research."--Jacket." ;
