Genealogical Research in England's Public Record Office
This guide explains the basics for using England's Public Record Office (PRO) for genealogical research. It covers everything from what a person can and ought to bring with them and where to find food and lodging nearby, to the obvious necessities of researching and photocopying in the PRO library. Reid, head of the Local History and Genealogy Reading Room at the Library of Congress, and Fowler, archivist at the Society of Genealogists in London, provide information on emigration and immigration records, as well as other records such as military, marriage, birth, death, tax, and probate records.
