Family History Getaway: Family History Research Before 1837
Join us for a three-day Getaway - Family History Research in England and Wales before 1837 - without having to travel anywhere. This year the Society of Genealogists is delivering its Getaway programme on Zoom. So where you live doesn’t matter. What does matter is you can take this opportunity to learn how to find your ancestors in Britain before 1837 and maybe even back to the 1600s.
Ten workshops and talks, question and answer sessions with the tutors, and group discussions and expert help every day included in the cost. A Getaway encourages you to focus on a period of time. Build up your skills, have your questions answered during the day, and increase your knowledge of British records.
This Getaway Online focuses on helping you find information and available records so that you can build a picture of your early ‘ordinary’ ancestors’ lives. You can see a full schedule on our website.
During this 3-day programme learn about:
- The sources available to research your family before 1837;
- Where to find the records and how to use them;
- How to begin to build a picture of what it was like to live and work in earlier times in Britain;
Plus join our group discussions and question sessions, supporting your own research requirements and building a community of shared interests with everyone else attending.
Who should attend
You will gain the most benefit from the course if you have already researched your family using the civil registration and census records in England and Wales.
