This book is an essential handbook for those researching their ancestry in the counties of Cornwall, Devon and Somerset and the city of Bristol. It begins with an introduction to the identity of 'The West Country', its geography and history over the centuries. It then guides family historians through the wealth of historical records available both online and in archives and libraries in order to add the 'flesh to the bones' of the names of ancestors on their family trees.
