Suited to the study of when, where and how a community, a family or an individual lived in Rutland, there are descriptions of dozens of records, with local archive references, and details of where other information 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 and nearby, on nonconformity, and on the complex changes to its civil and ecclesiastical boundaries, make this an invaluable handbook for local, social, and family historians. An alphabetical listing of all Rutland parishes and hamlets indicates the year of the first entry in a register and the hundred and registration district in which each parish was situated. There is a map of historic Rutland parishes and an index.
