Gypsy families in north Northumberland and the 'far bars'
« on: Wednesday 22 November 17 07:56 GMT (UK) »
A friend is retiring soon and has asked for help with her family history.
She has gypsy ancestors. This is outwith my experience! 8)
Could anyone suggest any accessible books, pamphlets etc. on this subject?

I would suggest The Romany and Traveller Family History Society
http://rtfhs.org.uk/ as a first port of call.
