My Ancestor was a Leather Worker - A Half-day Course on 29 September

Many of us find ancestors that worked with leather: tanners, curriers, shoemakers, saddlers, leather bottle makers and bookbinders to mention a few. Some trades were highly skilled and others were performed by the labouring classes. The leather trade had its height in the mid 1800s. In this half-day course, Ian Waller looks at the variety of records available and the conditions in which they worked.

A half-day course on Saturday, 29 September (2-5pm), cost £20.00/£16.00 SoG members. Places should be pre-booked, through our website or by telephone: 020 7553 3290 (Tue-Thu & Sat). Do you have a question? email the events department.
