Bibliog. , index. . 316 pages. This handbook on Welsh genealogy deals primarily with those aspects of family history research that are unique to Wales. Originally published by the Association of Family History Societies of Wales, it is considered the best book ever written on Welsh genealogy. It is certainly a very comprehensive handbook, with over twenty chapters treating the essential elements of Welsh genealogy. Each of the chapters is written by a specialist and is designed to guide the reader through the pitfalls and challenges of Welsh family history research. Chapters include: Archives in Wales, Family History Societies of Wales, Parish Registers, Civil Registration and the Census, Nonconformity, Surnames of Wales, Place Names, Basic Welsh for Family Historians, the IGI for Wales, Estate Records, Maritime Records, Wills, Education, and Parochial Records, Court Records, and Manuscript and Printed Pedigrees. For this new second edition, each author was given the opportunity to update his or her text in the light of recent developments, particularly in the area of local government and archives. While this has led to significant changes in a number of chapters, the aims and objectives of the first edition have been carefully preserved.
