Beginners Talk 19th & 20th century sources
Sat 6 May 2017, 10:30 – 12:30 BST
The 19th century saw an explosion in the publication of material which can be of considerable value to family historians. In this session, John Marsden looks specifically at Newspapers, Trade Directories, Poll Books and Rate Books, examines the information they can provide and suggests where they might be located.
These talks are aimed at people new to family history research or those who simply wish to refresh their knowledge. Talks will normally be held in the Performance Space on the ground floor of Manchester Central Library on Saturday mornings from 10.30am until approximately 12.30pm.. The talks are free to Society members but non-members are most welcome to attend for a small charge of £3.00 (refundable for anyone who joins on the day).
