Twentieth Century Family History
Some Sources For tracing English families In The last Century.
From Victorians to Elizabethans: tracing our English Ancestors from 1901-1952
We often neglect the twentieth century as being ‘not really history’ but there is plenty to be discovered about individuals and the communities in which they lived between 1901 and 1952. Twentieth century research brings with it the difficulties of larger and more mobile populations as well as records that are closed to view, so here are some sources that can help you to bring those more recent ancestors to life.
