I'm using this along with a "Great Courses" course on the Reformation in order to find out about my ancestory. It's difficult to trace then because of the wars, massacres, and burning of churches where the records were held. This book is great about putting it in context. It's difficult if you don't know the history of France. The author gives just enough background information to hlep create a context. If you are totally clueless about the history of France like me, it might be good to back it up with further reading, but this really is a fantastic resource. I'm thrilled to have found this.23 of 24 people found the following review helpful. Introduction to Huguenot genealogyBy Mark HowellsThis book covers some of the basic history of the Huguenots and their settlement areas in Great Britain and later in North America and South Africa.It discusses the records from the United Kingdom which can assist a researcher in tracing Huguenots. Everything from Probate to Livery Company records are discussed. In addition, a brief chapter is included on research sources in France, the Netherlands, Germany, and Switzerland.This is a good introductory book, particularly if you suspect that your Huguenots passed through Britain in their travels.
