Fifth edition. This helpful guide was originally published in 1955. The guide has been very popular and has introduced more ancestry-tracers to the subject than any other. This edition has been completely revised. Mr Willis, who died before the publication of this edition, was a quantity surveyor who shortly before his retirement from practice took interest in his own family history. At the time there was no up-to-date text book and so he set out to write his own which became world famous. (Cancel stamp from the Society of Australian Genealogists Library.). ISBN: 0850335507.
