4 The Na­tional Ar­chives

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - BEST WEBSITES - me­dia.na­tion­alarchives.gov.uk

Many TNA guides touch on 17th- cen­tury re­sources, and are a great start­ing point for re­searchers new to the era (as are the equiv­a­lents found at Na­tional Records of Scot­land, Na­tional Li­brary of Wales, Pub­lic Records Of­fice of North­ern Ire­land, et al). You could also try the lec­tures, pod­casts and we­bi­nars avail­able via TNA’s me­dia player, which in­clude a 2008 lec­ture by David Hey, ‘Our 17th Cen­tury Ancestors’, ex­plor­ing reg­is­ters, wills, ap­pren­tice­ship records, hearth tax re­turns and more. Mean­while, if you’re hunt­ing for wills, you can also search Dis­cov­ery for all wills proved at the Pre­rog­a­tive Court of Can­ter­bury be­tween 1384 and 1858 (se­ries PROB 11).
