ENGLISH GENEALOGY BEFORE 1837: RESEARCHING PRE-VICTORIAN RECORDS

Join us for a full day with two outstanding experts in the field of English genealogy.  International lecturer and author Paul Milner and our own James F.S. Thomson will help us move back in time before civil registration and censuses to trace our English ancestors in pre-Victorian records.  Ideally suited to the intermediate or advanced level researcher.
