Day School: Who Does Billericay Think It Is? A Billericay Story!

Ref: C2228851

Without necessarily being an eye witness to major events even the routine experiences of our immediate ancestors can provide valuable indicators of more general social, economic and political developments from their era. Using examples from Essex and Suffolk with contemporary newspapers and family history research we will attempt to measure how valuable such an approach can be. This session will examine settlement motivations and patterns in Essex from East London.

Course aim

The main purpose is to provide an insight into the methodology of family history research and its relationship to local and national developments
