“The Mists of Time- Sources for Medieval and Early Modern Genealogy” – by Dr Nick Barratt – a Zoom Meeting

July 19 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Nick will provide an overview of the key sources we can use to trace medieval and early modern ancestors prior to the 18th Century, with a summary of some of the required research skills and practical challenges you’ll need. He also provides an overview of the manorial system, which affected the way most of our ancestors lived, as well as records created by local and national government in which our relatives may appear.

Dr Nick Barratt obtained a PhD in history in 1996 from King’s College London. He began working in television soon afterwards, for the BBC as a specialised archive researcher on a number of programmes including “House Detectives”. He is probably best known to us as leading the team of researchers for the first four series of “Who Do You Think You Are”. Nick continues to provide expert research and heritage services along with lectures and consultancy, and has written several books.

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