Wednesday, June 12, 2024 13:00 Bring Your Family History Back To Life Family history is addictive. But if your family tree has stalled then this talk should provide the inspiration you need to add new life back into it. Our Editor, Alan Harper, and Secretary, Richard Ashberry, look at ways you can reignite your tree, with easy-to-use techniques to place your ancestors in the context of time and place. In this fully illustrated talk, Richard reviews some resources and Alan takes us through the life story of two people from his own family history. Handouts will be available for 'in-person' attendees. In person at Norfolk Record Office, Norwich and online.
