Society of Genealogists RootsTech London Extra

If you're going to RootsTech London, 24-26 October, you may want to take advantage of an extra genealogy day being offered by the Society of Genealogists.

There are two free lectures on Wednesday 23 October being presented by Alec Tritton, a RootsTech London 2019 featured speaker.

The Old Poor Law Before 1834, being offered at 2 pm
The Tudor poor laws limped on, administered by the church in its civil capacity, until it was replaced in 1834. The resulting records produced an amazing amount of information about those who did or who might become a burden on the parish.

Finding the Wills of your Ancestors, being offered at 4 pm 
This talk will help you to understand the genealogical value of Wills, be able to use them in compiling Family Histories, understand the differences in probate administration and records (before and after 1858) and to be able to navigate the various systems.

Free tours of the society library are also being offered on the same day starting at either 11:15 am or 2:15 pm.

Space is limited.
