Reviews - UK Timeline for Family Historians

U3A The University of the Third Age, Family History Newsletter 006, November 2012.

"It's a beautifully produced book and will be so useful." Helen, West Yorkshire.

"What a marveously comprehensive little book and what a monumental effort putting it all together. It is a gem!" Anne, NSW, Australia.

"A useful aid to family research." Village Connect magazine, North East Leicestershire.

"Fascinating new concept in family history books. The watermark backing of historical photos to each page was somewhat distracting, particularly as most had no reference to the dates on the page, but altogether this is a very interesting way to provide the dates needed to research your family history." West Middlesex Family History Society, Journal Volume 30, Number 3, September 2012.

"Have just spent a very enjoyable couple of hours reading the book from cover to cover. Really like the format, paper and font and particularly the watermark photos." Janet, North Yorkshire.

"A seemingly unique publication helping family historians understand the importance of dates." "There are many details here, which even experienced genealogists will not be familiar with..."

"My husband recently ordered your book for me and I am delighted with it. I have thought for some time now that such a book would be very useful to family historians, such as myself, who are rather ill informed about dates and events. Your book is exactly what was needed. It deserves to be successful." Jane, Cheshire.

"An excellent service and the book looks really useful!" Anne, Cambridgeshire.

"This book comes under the heading of being a really useful book." Devon Family History Society.

"I was amazed at the amount of work that went into this publication. It is everything (and more) about the timelines of major events in the UK. It is the most valuable 'weapon' in my arsenal of books and for that I am most pleased. Good luck with the promotion of this asset to family historians." Colin, Ontario, Canada.

"Une frise chronologique pour nous rappeler dans quel contexte historique tel ou tel ancêtre outre-manche a vécu: la source qui nous manquait! Chaque pays devrait avoir la sienne!" Marie Claire, Villeneuve, France.
