Day Four is on English Research with instructor Frank Southcott. Frank is the President of the International Society for British Genealogy and Family History.
Frank's presentations will be:
Researching Your Family in England: Census and National Registration
A useful England census has been conducted every 10 years since 1841 and is accessible through 1911. It is the primary resource to establish families in England during that period. England also conducted a national registration in 1939 as an ancillary of WWII. Both of these resources will be explored during this session.
Researching Your Family in England: Civil Registration
Civil registration of birth, marriages and deaths commenced on 1 July 1837. Explore the records and idiosyncrasies of the registration process in England and how to obtain the information for your family.
Researching Your Family in England: Wills and Church Records
Wills survive from early times. Baptisms, marriages and burials survive in a great number of parishes from the mid-1500's. This session will explore the available probate and church records and the wealth of information that can be derived.
