Event description

Description

This exciting new project will help local people find the answers and explore the criminal past of their own families, through a series of free workshops at the Hull History Centre.

The project will for the first time bring world-renowned experts to Hull to help the public gain greater understanding not only of their own family history, but also the history of the communities, the city and the East Yorkshire region in which they live and work.

This workshop is for anyone who want to know more about the history of crime, crime records, and the secrets of finding, interpreting and using criminal records to help research local and family history.

A criminal ancestor is anyone who historically encountered the criminal justice system, whether they’re the accused, victims, witnesses, prisoners, police and prison officers. This workshop will help the public learn how to use historical crime, policing and punishment records in searching for their relatives.

*This is the first of three events in the Our Criminal Ancestors series. You can attend any or all of the events as you wish.*

  • Saturday 15th July - Introduction to Crime and Criminal Records

  • Saturday 23rd September - Prosecution and Policing

  • Saturday 21st October - Punishment

The project has been funded by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council, which means that all events are free to attend.

A light lunch will be provided. Please inform the event organiser of any specific dietary requirements.
