Description

Free webinar

The National Archives holds 539 series of Home Office records, which collectively touch on almost every aspect of life in Britain. However, many of these records do not have detailed catalogue entries, so the treasures within go unseen.

This webinar will explain how researchers can effectively search 19th century Home Office records, and showcase material found within them – from drunken militiamen and rioting Cornish fishermen, to England’s last proper revolution and the records which inspired the book, The Suspicions of Mr Whicher.

We run an exciting range of events and exhibitions on a wide variety of topics. For more details, visit nationalarchives.gov.uk/whatson.
