FAMILY HISTORY BOOKS
History of the Laflin Family from Suffolk by Susan Laflin. Price 20. ISBN 978-1-326-12422-9 Click here to order a copy. The LAFLIN family have been found in Suffolk since the mid sixteenth century until the present day. This book represents the current state of my research into their history and takes it from around 1500 (the earliest reference yet found is 1524) to the 1901 census. Throughout the discussion, I have tried to indicate my sources so that readers may check the information and form their own opinions.This book was first printed in 2007 and has been made available until I have time to produce an updated version.

The PREEN FAMILY HISTORY STUDY GROUP exists to research the family. It organises an Annual Reunion and is preparing a History of the Preen Family in four volumes. DNA analysis has shown that the Preen Family is divided into three groups, each with a common ancestor in the seventeenth century. Volume One, to be published this summer, will discuss the early history of the family and then Volumes Two to Four, now published, each cover one of the three groups.
