Sorry, there are no longer any places available.

This lecture is now fully booked. Due to demand, a second date has been added for this talk on 6 December. Bookings can be made here.

In June, the Society of Genealogists received 57,000 microfilms from FamilySearch (the genealogical arm of the Church of Latter Day Saints or Mormons). These films were formerly available at the London Family History Centre which is temporarily housed at the National Archives in Kew. These films are now available for viewing at SOG.

There is a significant amount of material for Ireland and Scotland and overseas material for Jamaica and other Caribbean Islands. There is also a lot of Jewish records. Nearly three thousand of the films are copies of all the wills probated between 1858-1925 in the Principal Probate Registry and Local District Registries in England and Wales.

Learn how to identify the films you want, how to order them, use supplementary finding aids and how to view them. This 90 minute talk with staff genealogist, Else Churchill is free of charge, but must be pre-booked.
