My book will focus on the history and records of the cities of Manchester and Salford, including the current districts and townships: e.g. places like Ancoats, Cheetham and Newton Heath for Manchester, and for Salford, places like Eccles, Worsley, Irlam, Cadishead, Swinton and Pendlebury. I'll be covering sources for religious and ethnic minorities, too.
I am very excited about my new project as I grew up in Salford, and I have ancestors from both cities. If all goes well, the book should appear early in 2017.
