“Posted in the Past” – a talk by Helen Baggott
April 21 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
CANCELLED DUE TO THE CURRENT SITUATION
Helen will be giving the talk on Tues. 20th April 2021
This meeting has been cancelled as a result of Government guidance on the coronavirus.
Following on from her book “Posted in the Past”, Helen uses genealogical skills to reveal the true stories behind postcards from the early years of the 20th century, and Helen shares these tales through her illustrated talk. A 10 year old servant living in Bath, a soldier who died in the first World War, and even the man who helped prepare Lord Kitchener’s last meal, all are 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.
