“Family History Sources at The National Archives” – a talk by Susan Moore
February 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Susan’s talk will concentrate on the valuable sources held at the National Archives. Bearing in mind that only 5% of the Archives are on-line, she shows the sort of information that can be found by family historians in the other 95%. Subjects will range from Army and Naval personnel, to tax and Manors, and then to records of family disputes and criminal records. The talk will not only illustrate the information in the records, but will include guidance on identifying and locating relevant records.
Susan is an independent professional Genealogist and researcher, with a lifetime’s experience in private, County and National archives. Initially she worked in Devon, then in Scotland, later moving to London for many years, with her emphasis on the history of houses and manorial lordships. Now based in Somerset, Susan specialises in Chancery records in the National Archives, working for families. She has also done research for the National Trust, uncovering the history of a Somerset village and manor.
