Lies, Damned Lies and Family History- A One-hour Lecture on 16 March

We have all heard family tales about illustrious ancestors or simply tales of our forebears. Some of these tales are to hide dark secrets, but mostly they are just stories of the family's past. In this talk,  I will look at some of the stories I have been told about my ancestors and the ways I have researched them. Some turned out to be lies and damned lies and some were true, or at least partially true. Some stories turned out to be sad and other hilarious, but all of them were worth researching!

A one-hour lecture on Thursday, 16 March (2pm) with Rev Wim Zwalf, cost £8.00/£6.40 SoG members. Places should be pre-booked through our website, or by telephone: 020 7553 3290. Do you have a question? email our events department.
