New Book - My Ancestor was a Woman at War

We are delighted to publish our latest book, My Ancestor was a Woman at War by Emma Jolly. This book aims to explore the wide range of roles undertaken by women during wartime. A useful aid in tracing a female ancestor's military career, the book also encourages wider research into the role of women at war, with a particular emphasis on the Victorian era and the First and Second World Wars. With numerous fascinating case studies, and a very useful guide to available records and sources, this book is an essential read for any family historian with a female military ancestor or indeed an interest in military history.                                                

Emma Jolly is a professional genealogist and writer, and a member of the Society of Genealogists, the Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives and the Families in British India Society.
