“Nonconformity (The Road to Toleration)” by Les Mitchinson
October 14 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Nonconformity is the blanket term given to all non-Anglican Protestant denominations. Brought about by Henry VIII’s break away from the Catholic Church in the 16th century, many Roman Catholic and Nonconformist leaders were burnt at the stake. It was in 1689 that the “Act of Toleration” was introduced which slowly helped to change the acceptance of nonconformists. From this more records were kept and Les helps guide us through the sources that can help trace these ancestors.
Les makes a second visit to us this year, bringing his help and tips on another genealogical challenge. Les is a professionally qualified genealogist and runs his own business specialising in courses in family history and genealogy.
