Back To Work!

I hope you all had a fantastic break! I have got lots of work to do over the next few weeks, so there may be radio silence for a while. In the meantime, for the bicentenary of Jane Austen's death, I have a feature on Austen's life coming up in the Discover Your Ancestors 2017 bookazine.
On the family history front, the January issue of Your Family History has my article on researching small businesses. Sometime in April, my new book, Tracing Your Manchester and Salford Ancestors will be published by Pen & Sword.
Events are also being planned for the bicentenary of the Pentrich Rebellion this June, and you can read the story of the rebels and their fate in Regency Spies.
