This link will take you to my full online store for family tree books and software, along with other items of interest about the Coventry Blitz, the first and second World Wars and the history of Coventry.
If you fancy treating yourself or a loved one to a special family item, take a look at
House of Names. They sell a variety of goods, such as mugs, t-shirts, beer steins, key chains, plaques, framed armorial histories, jewellery boxes, tote bags, shot glasses, and many more. The cool thing about House of Names is that the items you buy bear the family crest of your choosing. You just specify the family surname you would like when ordering. Makes a great gift or keepsake, and is ideal to complement the sort of genealogical research service I provide.
I have shortlisted a selection of the best and most useful books on the subject of family trees, or on researching your family history. These books will provide training and tutorials for novice family tree researchers, as well as being a useful reference for the more proficient.
As you research your family tree, computer programs will help you manage and store the historical information you uncover. A good software package will let you print out nicely formatted family trees based upon the information you enter into the system.
The most popular family tree software packages are inexpensive and include a host of bundled extra information, which is worth checking out, to see which program best suites your needs. I have hand picked a short selection of the most useful family tree software programs to help you choose.
In the course of my work, I occasionally come across a useful gadget or device which will be helpful to fellow family tree researchers. This page lists useful gadgets, along with family tree related DVDs which I particularly recommend.

A selection of books and DVD's related to Coventry's modern heritage. Information about Coventry's industrial heritage such as the motor industry, bicycles, etc. but also a bit about Coventry music and sport. It is interesting to see how Coventry evolved during and since the 20th Century.
