Books Info:

The Illustrated History of Our Family free pdf A unique record that follows the line of descent from a pastry cook in Victorian London to the author's children. Complete with 100 old photographs. This enchanting personal memoir traces a South London family history from Victorian times to the present day. Delightful old photographs of great-grandparents- characters like Uncle Willie the ventriloquist and "Sid the Cheerful"- tales of long-lost American cousins- fond memories of Grandma Doris and Great-aunt Dolly- quotable quotes, Famous Utterances and a fair smattering of affectionate gossip - all combine to produce a fascinating social document. If you're wondering how to write up your own friends and family research material, you will find this an invaluable resource. It is beautifully presented with easy-to-follow family trees, dates of birth, names and nicknames. Details from the 1901 Census are lightly blended with touching snippets of information from soldiers' pay books, school certificates and family bibles. The result is an intimate and heart-felt account, showing that you don't have to be Charles Dickens to write a little book for your descendants to treasure.
