Birmingham, the cradle of the industrial revolution and the worldÆs first manufacturing town, is an important focus for many family historians who will find that their trail leads through it.

His work addresses novices and experienced researchers alike and offers a compendium of sources from legal and ecclesiastical archives, to the records of local government, employers, institutions, clubs, societies and schools. Accessible, informative and extensively referenced, it is the perfect companion for research in BritainÆs second city. -
