Monthly talk - Graham Bradbury: The good, the bad and the spooky

Tue, 05/07/2022 - 14:00

Graham will join us at Cross Houses to talk through his experiences whilst researching his family history. 

He will cover resources, methods and tips that make family history come alive such as old maps, quarter session records, police and criminal records, divorce and rail records to name but a few. 

Please note this talk is part of an afternoon meeting at Cross Houses and will not be available on Zoom. 

We are still considering how we can best enable face to face meetings for those who can get to Cross Houses whilst preserving the opportuniy for our more distant members to participate in the monthly talks via Zoom. 

Further information will be published on the website and in the journal when available.
