July 2019 Discounted Books of the Month on Nonconformists
We offer three books at a 20% discount this month:
My Ancestors were Congregationalists
As many may know, parish registers of the Church of England are not the only source available to family historians for identifying the baptisms, marriages and burials of their forebears. For those with Congregationalist ancestors there are many records available, and this booklet is an essential guide to locating and understanding them. A revised, detailed directory list of all Congregationalist chapels in England and Wales founded before 1850, it includes a comprehensive list of Congregational Chapels founded before 1850, with details of holdings by record offices and major libraries.
By David H Clifford, revised edition 1997, A5, 77 pages. The usual cost of My Ancestors were Congregationalists is £3.90 and is currently available to SoG members at the discounted price of £3.16 (£3.51 to non-members).
My Ancestor was a Mormon
Charting the history of British Mormons and their journeys to America, Ian Waller’s thorough research guide provides the reader with carefully woven history/genealogy research guidance, which is both accessible and professional in its approach. Beginning with a lengthy general history of the LDS church, it then goes into specific avenues that the researcher will naturally encounter, such as emigration, colonisation, and using the relevant microfilms. The book concludes with a detailed directory of learning centres with a focus on the LDS church, all vital for Mormon genealogy.
By Ian Waller, published 2012, A5, 278 pages with illustrations/photographs.
