Genealogy for Beginners
Based on the original work by Arthur Willis (1955), this book tells the beginner how to set about tracing a family history and constructing one's own pedigree. It explains how to make use of living relatives, existing clues and the internet; how and where to find written records, and what kind of information these sources can provide.
Companions of Honour
The Order of the Companions of Honour was instituted in 1917 as an offshoot of the Order of the British Empire. Originally designed to honour 'conspicuous service of national importance' in the First World War, it is now conferred more broadly on high attainment and national renown. This volume tells the story of the foundation and development of the honour and includes short biographies of more than 300 past and present members of the Order.
