Else Churchill and Jackie Depelle aim to help you find records that can take your family tree back in time, before 1841, and bring your tree into the 20th century, after 1911. During the usual census years, 1841-1911, there are plenty of records to cross-reference and roll back you family research. But what about the times before and after these years? Discover where research sources can be found and used effectively.
