Paul Milner and Chris Paton Books at Global Genealogy

Rick Roberts of Global Genealogy wrote to let me know about two British genealogy books now being printed.
Buried Treasure: what’s in the English parish chest, By Paul Milner
Down and Out in Scotland: Researching Ancestral Crisis,  By Chris Paton

As BIFHSGO members know Chris and Paul are both knowledgeable and acclaimed speakers. Chris will be back in Ottawa in September, Paul was a conference speaker in September 2014.

Paul Milner's book covers English and Welsh settlement and removal records, bastardy records, apprenticeship records, vestry minutes, churchwarden accounts, constable accounts, militia records and more including where to find them. Unlike the familiar parish baptism, marriage and burial records, the topic of another of Milner's books, these records are generally less inclusive but more detailed. They're also less likely to be online.

Chris Paton's book looks at records of ancestral hardship in Scotland, to allow us to truly understand the situations that Scots ancestors had to endure and overcome across the generations. Contents are organized under the headings: family events and relationships; law and order; poverty; debt; medical problems; them and us.

The are books published by Unlock the Past in Australia and printed in Canada through Global Genealogy.
