Want to know what records are available in the archives in a particular part of the UK to help you in your searches for your Travelling ancestors?

That’s what we have been covering for a while in the Signposts series in the RTFHS journal Romany Routes. The articles point you to the sources available to you county by county, both those that are online and those that are held in local Record Offices, libraries and museums. We highlight any that relate specifically to Romany, Traveller and Fairground people.

And to make the articles easier for everyone to refer to and use, we’ve now created a new Signposts page on this website. Here you’ll find all of the articles that have appeared in the journal so far – and we’ll add to these as we publish new ones.

Happy hunting!
