August 2019 Discounted Book of the Month - My Ancestor was in the British Army
This book is written for the modern family historian who wishes to research the activities of their ancestors and kinsmen who served in the British Army since 1660. It is a practical guide intended to help them find their way into and through the many records now available in archives and on the internet.
There is a wealth of such records for the millions of British soldiers who have served their country – many will find surprising and plentiful details of their ancestors while others may struggle to find a one-line mention. In either case, the individual will follow a fascinating thread through British history.
