Further details at http://heritagefamilyhistory.co.uk/courses.htm or telephone 01797 344376

We will investigate some of the sources that will help you see behind the scenes in your ancestors’ lives, learning about incidents that happened to them and gaining an understanding of what everyday life was like for them. We cover a range of centuries and will look at records produced in connection with nearly every stage of a person’s life from infant to adult and the grave. Topics covered include school and workhouse records (in particular those relating to workhouse staff), trade directories, apprenticeships and guilds, Ordnance Survey maps, churches and gravestones and finally – court records where nearly all of our ancestors would have featured at some point in their lives either for civil or criminal misdemeanours or as witnesses. These records can be the most revealing and show you what your ancestors were really like!
