Whether you are interested in the career of an individual service woman or just want to know more about the part played by service women in a particular war or campaign, this is the book for you. Assuming that the reader has no prior knowledge of service women, Mary Ingham explains which records survive, where they can be found and how they can help in your research. She also vividly describes the role of women with the armed services from the Crimean War of the 1850s to the aftermath of the First World War and offers an insight into what the records can tell you about the career of an ancestor who served at home or abroad. From the army schoolmistresses to the Women’s Land Army, her account outlines the history of each service, describes uniforms and gives examples of daily life and likely experiences. This is the book you need if you want to follow up those clues in your family’s history – stories heard from older relatives, pictures in family photograph albums, handed-down uniforms, badges or medals that seem to indicate that one of your women ancestors served in wartime.

REVIEWS

About the Author:

Mary Ingham’s interest in women ancestors was aroused by research for her first book, Now We Are Thirty. Since starting a specialist family history research service on nurses and women who served in the First World War, she has established herself as an expert on British service women and their records. She has contributed many articles to women’s magazines and also written for Ancestors. This is her third book.

Review:

The author explains which records survive, where they can be found, and how they can help in your research. Roots and Branch, West Surrey FHS There is a wealth of information. - Family Tree It is surprising to learn that women have served alongside their men folk in the armed services since the 1850s. This book deals with records about pioneering women ancestors, up to the 1920s, the main period of which records are available. With many illustrations this gives a very comprehensive history of how women served their country, as well as enabling you to find the records of this service. - West Middlesex Family History Society "This compact book packs an enormous amount of expertise and guidance into a limited space in a form which I think has never been done before - therefore commending it to the experienced researcher as much as the novice. This will save vast amounts of time, money and effort in research which could rapidly recoup its purchase cost." Friends of the NAM, March 2013
