How to resolve stumbling blocks in your family history research using new and unique search strategies to find those missing relatives. Techniques he will cover will include searching for a family using just the individuals’ forenames, keyword search tools (using criteria other than a name to search on) and other advanced search techniques. The talk also covers unique data sets such as Non-Conformist records, Non-Parochial records, Fleet marriages, Will images, Parish Records, Military Records, Directories, Newspapers and more.
This talk explores how with research and the right tools you can step back in time looking at where your ancestors lived, worked and spent their leisure time. Follow the routes they may have taken on old maps and look at the views they may have seen.
Mark discusses how to get the most out of map-based record sets, what’s available online and demonstrates a fantastic tool for viewing them.
