Ever wondered why your family happened to be in a particular town or village when they were caught by the census enumerator, got married or had their children baptised? The essential RTFHS guide to the location and dates of 19th century fairs and markets is now available again.

A Calendar of Fairs and Markets, researched and compiled by RTFHS member Pat Loveridge, includes references both to pleasure fairs and to things like horse fairs and pedlary fairs so it’s a useful addition to the bookshelf of those with Romany ancestry and Fairground ancestry alike.

Find out more about the book and how to order your copy on the RTFHS website.
