This indispensable book is divided into sections and includes a list of sites which deal with the whole spectrum of genealogy.
There is a full alphabetical subject guide, providing an accessible directory of web addresses grouped under straightforward headings, such as Births, Deaths & Marriages; Law & Order; Surnames; and Wartime and Military Sources. An index helps to locate specific topics. When using the Internet it is easy to just Google an subject and go off on a ramble through various sites. However when you are up against time or not at your home computer and using a public computer this is an ideal reference guide to have in your bag. From Swendeborgians to the East India Company this will serve you well. It provides a service similar to that online at Cyndi’s List but very much with a British twist. My only criticism is that you will probably need an updated version in two years time.
As an important crossing point of of the River Severn, Gloucester has played an important role in history from Roman times to the present day. It was founded in AD 97 under Emperor Nerva and has a rich and varied history, reflected in its architecture and the stories told by its people. Gloucester is a cathedral city and capital of its county – a richly historic place worthy of a visit. Gloucester History Tour takes the reader on a journey of significant places of interest within the city, including the beautiful cathedral, celebrated docks (newly renovated) and its noteworthy streets.
