Original Title: Tracing Your Canal Ancestors: A Guide for Family Historians
Description:
Britain's industrial revolution depended on canals for the cheap movement of materials and goods - until the coming of the railways. Canal companies struggled to compete and went into a long decline, but much of the canal network is still with us today, and interest in the history and heritage of canals - and those who worked on them - is strong. That is why Sue Wilkes's w Britain's industrial revolution depended on canals for the cheap movement of materials and goods - until the coming of the railways. Canal companies struggled to compete and went into a long decline, but much of the canal network is still with us today, and interest in the history and heritage of canals - and those who worked on them - is strong. That is why Sue Wilkes's well researched and highly readable handbook on the subject is so valuable. She concentrates on the people who lived and worked on the waterways - the canal boatmen, their families and their way of life - and those who depended on the canal trade for a living - the lock-keepers, toll collectors, and canal company clerks. She provides a thorough, practical guide to the sources - the archives, books, websites, societies - available for researchers if they are studying our inland waterways, or trying to find out about an ancestor who worked on the canals or was connected with them.
