This book, now in paperback, draws on material from the 1901 census, released to the public for the first time in January 2002, enabling the reader to look at what life was really like for ordinary people, rich and poor, one hundred years ago. David Hey paints a picture of work, play, love and death in our ancestors' world with expert text and a unique collection of historic photographs and graphic art from The National Archives. He deals with themes such as family life, mobility, housing, work, military service, religion, education and leisure. Illustrated case studies tell the story of individual lives and allow the reader to build a picture of their own family's past through original records.
David Hey is widely recognised as a leading figure in the field of genealogy and social history in Britain today. His previous books include Family Names and Family History and The Oxford Guide to Family History:
