March Women MarchMarch, Women, March – review by Karen Clare (FT July 2013)
Published to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of suffragette Emily Wilding Davison, author Lucinda Hawksley gathers together extracts of letters and diaries relating to the women’s movement, exploring events back to the first ‘feminist’ book in 1792. The ‘miserable’ existence of many of our women ancestors is brought starkly to life, making this a shocking but inspirational read.

WIN! The Last Days of Richard III book

COMPETITION CLOSED. Winner to be announced soon!

Within days of the University of Leicester’s revelations that the skeleton found under a car park in Leicester was the missing remains of King Richard III, historian and genealogist John Ashdown-Hill had updated his 2010 ‘book that inspired the dig’ - The Last Days of Richard III and the Fate of his DNA. We have one copy of this fascinating book to give away! To be in with a chance of winning, simply answer correctly the question below and complete the form.

The Last Days of Richard IIIThe Last Days of Richard III and the Fate of his DNA – review by Karen Clare (FT April 2013)
This in-depth examination of the last five months of the king’s life, and death at the Battle of Bosworth, includes the latest DNA research, which the author used to identify the direct female-line descendant of Richard’s older sister, Anne of York – British-born Canadian Joy Ibsen. In his new interpretation, Ashdown-Hill, who appeared in the Channel 4 TV documentary ‘The King in the Car Park’, seeks to throw fresh light on Richard’s reign, still mired in controversy more than 500 years after his death. It clearly was a labour of love for him and his fellow investigators. We learn how the first edition, which ended ‘perhaps one day the search for Richard III will begin!’, then saw Philippa Langley of the Scottish branch of The Richard III Society take her grave-finding project to the authorities in a bid to get Leicester’s Greyfriars Friary site excavated. As we now know, the dig began in August 2012 and, on the very first day, bones which turned out to be those of Richard III were unearthed. The remains had the same mtDNA (female line) sequence as Joy Ibsen’s son, Michael, and the rest, as they say, is history. Sadly, reveals the author, Joy died in 2008 so never got to hear that her royal uncle 16 generations removed had been found at last. The book fills in the gaps where the media coverage left off, and details how DNA research can really benefit genealogists today. Judge for yourself if Richard was the murderous rogue often depicted, but whatever you decide, there’s no doubt this book has, literally, changed history.

Take a trip back to the reign of Edward VII and discover what politics, entertainments and inventions our ancestors experienced. It was an era best enjoyed by the wealthy who were able to buy the new motor cars, wear the most fashionable clothes, eat the most exotic foods and dance at the swankiest country parties. To make the most of that lifestyle, manuals like this one were needed! With advice on health, children, food and entertaining, the photos and trade advertisements conjure a world long gone.

The Surname HandbookThe Surnames Handbook – review by Karen Clare
I’m sure we’re all guilty of it while researching our family history. That’s to say, sat idly Googling our family surnames to see what crops up, before disappearing down exciting new avenues of potential research for several hours, then deciding today’s NOT the day, and switching off the computer. Well, be prepared, as Debbie Kennett’s new ‘guide to family name research in the 21st century’ may well make you seize the day. Yes, there are already surname books and websites, but this refreshing book brings the resources together in one volume, with the latest information available for genealogists. Because it is specifically about the work of family historians in this field, as well as being aimed at newbie surname researchers, this is a very practical guide if you are considering taking your name studies further. I liked that it starts from scratch, with an overview of the history of surnames and whether they evolved from place-names or topographical features, occupations, kinships and more. Learn how to identify variants, measure the distribution of a surname and map your name using websites and software. Here you will find key resources, advice on how DNA testing can aid your research, and starting a one-name study. It won’t blind you with science and perfectly complements Debbie’s first book, DNA and Social Networking (2011), with a great bibliography to boot. If surname research is your next natural step, it can’t fail to put you on the path to success. A fascinating and essential read.
