Tracing Your Lancashire Ancestors

I'm very pleased to announce that I have a new book contract! I'm very excited about my new project for Pen & Sword books, Tracing Your Lancashire Ancestors, as Lancashire is the county where I was born. The book will look at the story of Lancashire as well as giving tips and hints for tracking down your ancestors from the county.

Congratulations, Sue. Looking forward to your book, especially since I have Lancashire relatives :)

Thanks, Jane! Do you mind me asking which part of Lancashire do your relatives come from?

I would be interested to know what boundary your Lancashire will have. I ask as while many of my ancestors were from what is still Lancashire a significant number of them were from places that are now in Cumbria.

Hi Mark,
Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. The book will cover sources for family historians for people who lived in Lancashire before the 1974 boundary changes. This means that I will include resources for places which were lost to the county in 1974 but were originally in Lancashire.
