BRIDGING THE GAP – tracing forwards from the 1911 Census – JACKIE DEPELLE an on line talk using “zoom”
16th February 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
One of the most exciting recent releases of source material for Family Historians has been the 1939 Register, not only for the information it provides but also its ability to provide links to runs of earlier records. Whilst we wait for the 1921 Census, there are other documents that can be used to provide details of our ancestors’ lives across the time period. This talk reviews several of them, identifying chronological timelines. Many are obvious, some perhaps unexpected as a sample case study reveals. Working forwards from First World War Internment, see what pieces of the jigsaw can be found and how they come together to illustrate the possibilities in researching comparatively recent lives.
Jackie Depelle has been teaching Family History since the days of micro-film and fiche and is now fully supporting digital initiatives. A speaker at major events such as WDYTYA – Live and Roots Tech London, Jackie has also run workshops and events for Archives, Country houses, Libraries, Museums and Universities
