The Society’s Book of the Month for March is My Ancestor was an Apprentice, by Stuart Raymond. Most of us have apprentices among our ancestors, since for several centuries it was a legal requirement to serve an apprenticeship before practicing a trade. This book outlines the history of apprenticeship, describes the records which survive and suggests ways in which researchers can investigate apprentices in their family tree. For the month of March, My Ancestor was an Apprentice is available at the special offer price of £7.19, or £6.47 for members of the Society. Offer ends 31/03/2012.
