Thinking of starting to research your family history, or have started and got stuck, then this course is just for you. We will begin with the 1919 Register and then look at the census from 1911 to 1841. Finally looking at birth, marriage and death records going back to 1837. All these records will help us get our research back to the early 1800s. We will see which internet sites to use, some of them are free, and how to document your research. Bring any family documents with you. ‘Family History - Pre 1837 records’ on 3-4 September is a continuation of this course.
