In a series of concise, information-filled chapters, Gill Blanchard shows how to trace the history of a house or flat, how to gain an insight into the lives of the people who lived in it and how to fit it into the wider history of the neighbourhood. A wealth of historical evidence is available in libraries, archives and record offices, in books and online, and this is the ideal introduction to it. Gill Blanchard explores these resources in depth, explains their significance and directs the researcher to the most relevant, and revealing, aspects of them. She makes the research process understandable, accessible and fun, and in the process she demystifies the sometimes obscure language and layout of the documents that researchers will come up against.
