.’Ravenstonedale Tales Volume 1′ relates three fascinating family histories, each of which starts with an interesting discovery found in the Parish History Group archives. The reader is taken far beyond a rural Cumbrian Parish to stories of wealth, High Court litigation and a legacy of historic buildings, celebrating success in the Victorian age. These three stories making up this 96 page paperback book are extensively illustrated, mostly with documents or photographs reproduced from the History Group Archives.
Each chapter is intended to take the reader through a story which unfolds, much as the research unfolded as it was undertaken by author Val Fermer. Recognising that some readers will have a genealogical interest, a Genealogist’s Checklist of family names from the three stories is included as an Appendix.
