POSTED IN THE PAST – a talk by HELEN BAGGOTT
September 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
“POSTED IN THE PAST”
Following on from her book of the same name, Helen uses genealogical skills to reveal the true stories behind post cards sent in the early years of the 20th century, and shares these tales with an illustrated talk. A 10 year old servant living in Bath, a soldier who died in the First World War, and even a man who helped prepare Lord Kitchener’s last meal are all connected through postcards.
Helen is a freelance writer and editor from Sturminster Newton, and gives talks to many Societies and Clubs in the area. She has also written articles for many local magazines including Dorset Life.
