YFT May issue Your Family HistoryMay 2017

Helping you to solve some genealogical blanks this month, Doreen Hopwood looks at the various ways in which our ancestors commemorated their dead, and how you can locate these forms of commemoration. Meanwhile, Sue Wilkes has been using Findmypast’s Catholic Heritage Archive and has provided us with some background and advice on Catholic records, and how to make the most from the archive.

Our main feature this month looks at a job that many of our ancestors will have held at some point - that of being in service - written by Michelle Higgs, author of Servants’ Stories: Life Below Stairs In Their Own Words.
