Caution

Visitations are an excellent way of identifying medieval and Tudor ancestors. Care should be taken with them however, as they were often based on family memory and contain errors.

As with all sources used in tracing your family history, whenever possible the information gained should be used to direct you to other contemporary sources (such as wills, inquisitions post mortem, etc.), so you can verify what you have found out.
