Thank you for visiting my website I hope that you will find something that is of interest to you For   those   who   are   interested   in   family   history,   television   programmes   such   as   “Who   Do   You   Think   You Are”   has   encouraged   enthusiasts   to   move   away   from   just   name   collecting   to   taking   a   more   scholarly approach   to   their   research.   This   includes   studying   the   local   history   of   the   parishes   in   which   their ancestors lived, the effect that it would have had on them and the part they played in this history. In   the   nineteenth   and   early   part   of   the   twentieth   century   many   books   were   written   that   will   help   family and   local   historians.      The   problem   is   that   a   lot   of   these   were   only   produced   in   very   small   numbers   and those that have survived are prohibitively expensive, if they come up for sale. The   object   of   this   website   is   to   eventually   have   the   largest   collection   of   these   rare   books   relating   to   the West Country available, in good quality, to everyone on CD at a reasonable price. Please   be   aware   that   due   to   my   amalgamating   two   accounts   any   payments   made   will   appear   on your   card   statement   as   “BEW   HEALTH”   or   “BEW   HEALTH   STORE”.      This   is   not   a   mistake   but   a way to try and keep costs down by not having two separate accounts.   USING THIS SITE There   are   a   number   of   ways   that   you   can   use   this   website. The   first   is   to   choose   a   county   that   you   are interested   in   and   then   click   on   the   button   with   that   county   on   in   the   left   hand   margin.     This   will   take   you to   the   first   page   of   this   county   and   then   you   can   browse   from   page   to   page   seeing   all   titles   for   that county.     Alternatively,   once   you   are   on   the   county   page   you   can   also   filter   what   you   look   at   by   clicking on   one   of   the   five   buttons   at   the   top   of   the   page,   such   as   Military   subjects,   Parish   Register   Transcripts or perhaps various Tax Lists Another   option   is   to   press   the   “Quick   List”   button,   in   the   red   left   margin,   and   from   this   choose   a   county that   you   are   interested   in. This   will   present   you   with   a   list   of   titles   relating   to   that   county.   If   you   see   any that you like just click on that link for details. HARD COPIES I   understand   that   a   lot   of   people   do   not   like   reading   from   a   computer   and   I   have   produced   most   of   the publications   so   that   they   can   be   printed,   either   specific   pages   or   the   whole   volume.        Also,   if   you   have an   eBook   reader   that   will   accept   PDF   files,   permission   is   granted   so   that   you   can   also   move   a   copy   to your reader.  POSTAGE Items are usually posted the same day UK Postage Free.
