Event Details


Thursday 24th May at 7:15 p.m.
Ipswich Group, Suffolk Family History Society.

Following our brief Annual Group Meeting, reviewing the past year, we will hear about
“Interpreting Parish Records”
Genealogists tend to take parish registers for granted as valuable sources of information for finding our ancestors. Do we always get the most out of them? Do they always tell the truth? Why were they actually made at all? Why did the format change at particular times, and how can this help family history research?
This talk shows how a deeper knowledge of parish registers can add context, understanding (and sometimes extra information) to the bare bones of the entries of baptisms, marriages and deaths of our ancestors, helping us discover richer family histories.’
Not ALL the answers are on the Internet! £2 members, £2:50 others.
Presented by Vivienne Aldous,
Suffolk based Professional archive researcher, Genealogist and Lecturer.
Park in Waterworks Street IP4 1JG behind the Centre.
