LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 1995. From the author of the best-selling Family tree detective, this helpful guide provides the amateur genealogist or family historian with the skills to research the distribution and history of a surname. Colin Rogers uses a sample of 100 names, many of them common, to follow the migration of people through the centuries. If you have one of the 100 or so sample surnames the book maps out your surname distribution through time. If not, you can still learn how to find out where your namesakes live now, how they have moved about the country and how the name started out - quite probably in the medieval period as a placename, a nickname or Christian name, or as a name based on your ancestor's job (like Carpenter or Smith). Colin Rogers concludes this fascinating book by showing how the distribution of surnames can be studied irrespective of the size of the surrounding population, and reaches some interesting conclusions about which names are more reliable guides to migration since the fourteenth century. The surname detective is a must for genealogists and surname study addicts but it also has much to interest the professional historian, population geographer and geneticist. (publisher notes) . Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
