TNA podcast: coroners' inquests

From a presentation at TNA on 4 August, Dr Kathy Chater, an independent genealogical researcher and author, gives one of the best recent podcasts in the series, on coroners' inquests. It contains solid information, interesting anecdotes, and does not rely on visual aids that mitigate against a good translation from an in-person presentation to a podcast. While newspaper reports are often the best resource on coroners' inquests, depending on the dates and places there are quite a few others that can be helpful – if you know where to look. Highly recommended.

Note that there is a copy of the Gibson's Guide on Coroners' Records mentioned in the BIFHSGO library.
