Research into West Indian ancestry is a relatively new and much neglected area of study in the U.K. This revised illustrated guide introduces researchers to the main sources available at The National Archives and elsewhere, including electoral and tax returns, land grants, colonial civil servants, the West Indies regiments and the Slave Compensation Commission. This is the only title currently available which brings together the wide range of sources available to researchers of West Indian ancestry. It includes details of recent accessions to The National Archives, in particular relating to the First World War military service records, the British West Indies Regiment and records of service for the merchant navy. It has been updated to include all the administrative changes at The National Archives since publication of the first edition and information about the NA's online services.
