Course description:
To explore Local, House and Family History through a short series of case studies and informal tutorials presented by experienced Tutor, Jackie Depelle. A range of sources will be included which, when brought together could create an illustrated narrative to share with family, friends and the locality. The course content is planned to include aspects of family history, village and land records, academic studies plus elements of people and place analysis, Short pieces of similar written work are also much appreciated by the Editors of associated Society journals perhaps another interesting aspect of our course therefore a brief review of recording techniques will be included. New and returning students will be most welcome.
