This event is now an online talk

Blacksmith was one of many village trades. A blacksmith did many different jobs, from making gates for the local manor to shoeing horses - although this latter job was one for a farrier. Most towns and villages had a local forge (or two!) so many of us have blacksmith ancestors.

In this half-day course, Ian Waller describes:

- The job of a blacksmith;

- The records that can help you as you do more historical research on blacksmiths.

There will be a question and answer session after the talk.

Date and Time:  11 July 10:30-11:30 (BST)
