Lives of our Ancestors: Recent and Long-standing Local History Sources - A Live Online Talk 6 March

Dr Gill Draper explains the work of the British Association for Local History. It specialises in listing resources and indexes and in keeping them up-to-date.

Many family historians want to explore local history to find out more about the lives of their forebears in such areas as: schooling; poverty and wealth; church and chapel; housing; or specific cities, towns and villages. Many resources with hundreds of personal names and details are now available in print and on free websites.

In this talk, Gill tells us about the British Association for Local History, which keeps up-to-date listings. It’s a valuable resource, especially as new indexes of names, places and occupations become available.

A live, one-hour on Saturday talk with Dr. Gill Draper, cost £10.00/£6.50 SoG members. Places must be pre-booked through our website

Note this talk will be recorded and available for two-weeks afterwards to anyone who makes a booking. We use the Zoom platform for our online talks, which is free and easy to use. Not used Zoom before? You can find more information here.
