I have used a variety of sources in researching my family history, including the following:
- My own personal knowledge, visits to graveyards etc
- Birth, Marriage and Death Certificates
- Parish Registers (originals and published transcripts/indexes)
- Transcripts of Memorial Inscriptions
- Census Returns
- Wills and Death Duty Registers
- Roll of Honour websites
- Estate Papers
- Ordination Papers
- Trade and other Directories
- Apprenticeship Records
- Research into Tobacco Pipe Makers, especially in Yorkshire
- Books on Local History, Topography etc
I have also received information from a number of other people, and I am grateful for this.
