My first thoughts on reading through Criminal Ancestors was that it would probably be a title ignored by many family historians and that is a great shame. Completely by accident I discovered more about one branch of my family tree thanks to a casual conversation with Hull Archivist Carol Tanner. Had this book been around a few years earlier, and had I the sense to invest in a copy, I would have saved hundreds of hours searching for the 'monkeys' that inhabit that particular branch.

Do not fool yourself into thinking that your ancestors were not of the criminal classes; you will one day find yourself very much surprised. This is a fascinating book which provides the reader with an amazing array of potential resources, advice on how to find, access and use them and some very interesting case histories to boot.
Crimewatch could learn a lot from this bunch of villians.
Crimewatch could learn a lot from this bunch of villains! All in all, if your ancestors were criminals, debtors, or drunks, or otherwise involved in a court case in England or Wales, then I strongly recommend this book. In all the book is a mine of information and even gives details of various websites and internet resources for those researching online.
All through the book are true-life examples of records used in order to help the reader build up a picture of how the structure and justice system of the day worked, by quoting specific examples. Stephen Wade is a professional writer specialising in regional crime, family heritage and nineteenth century history. He lives near Scunthorpe.

However, there is very little information on the practical research of criminal ancestors and the book is quite badly edited. Also is predominantly about England with very little about Scotland. One person found this helpful. Format: Paperback Verified Purchase.
