Published Sources for Family and Local History by Paul Gaskell – a Zoom meeting

May 28 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

As we are in the midst of face to face monthly talks  – DFHS is offering an additional meeting by zoom, so that those who live too far from Poole to visit, or can’t get to St Georges – can still join us!  For this extra meeting we will be joined by Paul Gaskell.

Paul has been researching his family history for the last forty-five years. He served as a trustee and executive committee member of Oxfordshire FHS for seventeen years and, more recently, was Hon General Secretary of Oxfordshire Record Society for five years. Much of Paul’s working life has been spent as a trainer, tutor and coach ; this is experience that he now utilises for the benefit of those wanting to advance their family and local history research.

This talk considers the publications of bodies such as the British Record Society, county publishing societies such as the Oxfordshire Record Society and parish register publishing societies such as the Lancashire Parish Register Society, looking at the publications that exist, how to access them and how to use them to further one’s research.

Zoom sign-in from 7.15 pm (UK time).

Society Members who have consented to receive information by e-mail will find a meeting invitation link, and how to donate the £3 admission, in the E-News sent about 4 days before the meeting.

Those who do not receive E-News, or who are not Society Members, are welcome to join this meeting and should use this link and select Liaison in the E-mail section to request an invitation link at least 6 hours before the meeting is due to start.
