Book of the Month - November

November's Book of the Month is My Ancestor was an Agricultural Labourer by Ian Waller. For most family historians, the discovery of an 'ag lab' in their tree is a very common occurrence, but what many don't realise is just how much information is available about these ubiquitous ancestors. Ian Waller's book gives an insight into the daily lives of agricultural labourers and their families, highlighting the effects of social and economic change upon them, while also outlining the many different records and sources from which you can start to piece together your own rural ancestors' lives.

A Fellow of the Society of Genealogists, Ian Waller writes and lectures widely on family history and is also the author of My Ancestor was a Leather Worker, My Ancestor was in the Royal Navy and My Ancestor was a Mormon, all published by the Society.
