A Beginner’s Guide to Family History

3rd January 2020, 11:32am | By David | Event Date : 20200604

Most people starting out in family history tend to begin online. This could mean asking questions of relatives on social media, or by signing up to one of the family history sites like Ancestry.com. There’s a huge amount of material available online, from census records to wills to parish registers, but what does it all mean, and where on earth do you start? Where do you go when you’ve exhausted the internet? This talk will take you through the first steps of any family history, as well as giving you some hints and tips on what to look out for when you get further up the family tree.
