In this talk, Else Churchill explains what is in the collection, how to order them, view them and use them. 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 available at the London Family History Centre, which is currently within The National Archives at Kew. These films are now available for viewing at SOG. There is a significant amount of material for Ireland and Scotland, Jamaica, and other Caribbean Islands. There are also a lot of Jewish records. Nearly 3,000 are copies of all the wills probated between 1858 and 1925 in the Principal Probate Registry and the Local District Registries of England and Wales. Learn how to identify the films you want, order them, use supplementary finding aids and view them.
This 90 minute talk with staff Genealogist, Else Churchill, is free of charge, but you must book your seat.
