2nd edition. vi + 58 pp.
Suited to the study of when, where and how a community, a family or an individual lived in Northamptonshire, there are descriptions of dozens of records and details of where facts may be found within the county and 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 Northamptonshire 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 Northamptonshire parishes and hamlets indicates the year of the first entry in a register and the rural deanery, hundred and registration district in which each parish was situated. There is a helpful index.
The author is Lord of one of the county's manors.
