2nd edition. iv + 60pp.
Suited to the study of when, where and how a community, a family or an individual lived in Bedfordshire, there are descriptions of dozens of records, with County Record Office references, and details of where facts may be found elsewhere. Sections for beginners to family history, addresses and telephone numbers of libraries, museums and country parks in the county, on campaigns and battles in which the Bedfordshire Regiment participated and on changes to civil and ecclesiastical boundaries, make this an invaluable handbook for local, social, military and family historians. An alphabetical listing of all Bedfordshire parishes and hamlets indicates the date of the first entry in a parish register and the hundred and registration district in which the places were situated. There is a useful map and index.
