The British Columbia Genealogical Society is a member of the Federation of Family History Societies (FFHS) which now publishes reviews of new genealogy books and CDs on the FFHS website: www.ffhs.org.uk
I was asked to review Michelle Higgs’s new book, Tracing Your Servant Ancestors: A Guide for Family Historians, and found this very readable, well organized and nicely illustrated. Higgs chose to define her topic broadly as including domestic, farm and institutional servants, and I appreciated this as among my own family there are parlour maids and general domestics, gamekeepers and gardeners.
The full review is in the December 2012 issue of The British Columbia Genealogist, Vol. 41, No 4, page 143 or follow this link to the Federation of Family History Societies review pages to see this review and others. A copy of this book is in the BCGS Walter Draycott Library, call # 942 HIG
