Criminal Ancestors by David T. Hawkings


Criminal Ancestors, A guide to historical criminal records in England and Wales

Many of our ancestors lived through difficult times; some resorted to crime for the most trivial offences. A genealogist who discovers a criminal in the family tree will need to know how to trace that person, and for this Criminal Ancestors is an invaluable guide.

David Hawkings' revised and updated study includes surveys of material held by all County and Borough Record Offices, The National Archives, police archives and other repositories, as well as numerous example cases and illustrations, appendices with source material and a case history to show the extent to which one individual criminal can be researched.

This unique and richly illustrated book provides the essential research and reference tool which no genealogist, social historian, criminologist or the simply curious should be without.
