Lives of Our Ancestors

Lives of Our Ancestors

Zoom talk covering recent and long-standing local history sources.

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. It’s a valuable resource, especially as new indexes of names, places and occupations become available.

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;
- Churches and chapels;
- Housing;
- Specific cities, towns and villages.

Many resources with hundreds of personal names and details are now available in print and on free websites.

About the speaker: Dr Gill Draper works for the British Association for Local History as its Events and Development Officer.
Live online talk: Saturday 6 March from 10.30 to 11.30 UK time. £10.00; Members of the Society of Genealogists: £6.50.

On 5 March an email invitation will be sent to all who have booked which includes a password and link to the talk. Gill’s talk will be recorded and will be made available to those who book a place, for up to two weeks after the event.
