We have excellent news about the books we’ve been preparing. The Romany & Traveller FHS has agreed to publish Anne-Marie’s book, The Gypsy Countess, by the 12th of May 2018 (the date of the Society’s next AGM, at which Anne-Marie will be speaking), and the R&T FHS has agreed to publish all eight of Eric’s Family Tree books, starting before next Christmas with Ten Gypsy Families of Wales and the English West and North.

Eric Trudgill    -    1 January 2018

Anne will be describing her book in the month or so before its publication, and Eric will be posting for each of the next eight months on this web-site specimen pages from his Family Tree books, so you can gauge from their method and contents whether you might want to buy one or more of them as they are published (all profits will go to help defray the R&T FHS’s numerous expenses). We’re starting with pages one and two of Ten Major 18th Century Boswell Families traced from about 1750 to about 1920. Please note that the abbreviations used (for example for counties and family relationships) will be explained, as with the R&T FHS’ Family Tree booklets, on a prefatory page.

Xmas Gifts

If you received book tokens as a Christmas present you ought to seriously consider spending them on a very special collection of poems by David Morley. The Invisible Gift includes several nature poems as well as many that explore the lives of Gypsies.
