Reflections after Southwark & Croydon family history workshops

Sadly no photo of the group from last Thursday’s event at John Harvard Library in Southwark, but we hope some of you will post your views and some of the lovely photos I caught a glimpse of! In fact, when we started the blog we asked for photos so that we could change the banner every now and then. So please do send them in with a little info about them. The same plea goes out to the group from Croydon Supplementary School, seen here hard at work last Friday:

For those who asked about military records, check our Military section in a day or so – I will upload some links and articles.

On a final note, get down to the family history centre in Kensington. Once you get started you will be hooked!

Part of Southwark Black History Month, two sessions introducing family research techniques. The  sessions will demonstrate the use of relevant websites and advise on which centres to visit. There will be time for everyone to start searching, there will be documents on display for handling, and  also plenty of group discussion. One of the discussion topics will be ‘oral tradition versus written records’.

Thursday 21st October 4.30 – 6.30: John Harvard Library

Saturday 23rd October 2.00 – 4.00: Peckham Library.
