Quarter Sessions Records a talk by Les Mitchinson
May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Quarter Sessions Records are the oldest public records of the historic counties of England and Wales that survive. In some counties they survive from the 15th century, mostly from the 17th century to 1972, when they were replaced by Crown Courts. These records can be found in County Record Offices, the British Library and smaller City and Town Record Offices. They have often been ignored by family and local historians.
Les returns after his informative talk on records of the workhouses and the poor laws, to look into another not so well used source of information and lead us through these records. Les is a professionally qualified genealogist and runs his own business specialising in courses in family history and genealogy.
