The Society of Genealogists is delighted to publish the fully revised second edition of My Ancestor was a Coalminer by David Tonks. This book is of tremendous use to anyone with coalminers in their family tree. The author was brought up in an East Durham colliery village and consequently the lives, work and communities of coalminers are vividly brought to life.  There is comprehensive chapter devoted to sources to encourage further research and a very helpful glossary of mining terms . This and many other books are available from the Society of Genealogists bookshop, and online at www.sog.org.uk
