This updated second edition of 'Tracing Your Liverpool Ancestors' gives a fascinating insight into everyday life in the Liverpool area over the past four centuries. Mike Royden's highly readable guide introduces readers to the wealth of material available on the city's history and its people. In a series of short, information-packed chapters he describes, in vivid detail, the rise of Liverpool through shipping, manufacturing and trade from the original fishing village to the cosmopolitan metropolis of the present day. Throughout he concentrates on the lives of the local people and on their experience as Liverpool developed around them. He looks at their living conditions, at poverty and the labouring poor, at health and the ravages of disease, at the influence of religion and migration, at education and the traumatic experience of war. His book is a valuable tool for anyone researching the history of the city or the life of an individual ancestor. AUTHOR: Mike Royden is a leading authority on the history of Liverpool.
