HAMILTON-EDWARDS, GERALD
In Search of Scottish Ancestry
London, Phillimore. 1973. (ISBN: 0900592710). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from a neat name, address and date to front pastedown and a few small ticks to some items in the appendix) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 252 pages. Following the success of his earlier book, In Search of Ancestry, the author seeks to guide the Scottish family researcher from the time he is led by curiosity to make tentative enquiries from aged aunts and uncles to the time when he is far back in the centuries immersed in an absorbing and often lifetime hobby. But the path of the Scottish genealogist differs considerably from that of the English searcher since Scotland for many centuries had its distinct history and, even more important, had its own legal system. The latter results in the existence of many records which have no counterpart in England and Wales. The book therefore provides invaluable information to conduct research. 167. Near Fine/Near Fine.
