Getting more out of Ancestry & Findmypast

An online workshop for family historians with Tony Wright

Are you getting the most out of Ancestry and Findmypast (FMP)? In this online workshop, discover the datasets they hold using Ancestry’s Card Catalogue and FMP’s Record Sets. Learn the benefits of the lesser used records. Such as Ancestry’s Census Enumerator’s Summaries, and where to find Census References and why you should use them. Find out how to locate Family History Societies’ transcriptions of parish registers and why you should prefer them. Tony will also share tips and best practices such as saving and renaming images.

If there is time, Tony will also touch upon military records and passenger lists. 

2 - 4pm

Pre-booking is required as full joining instructions will be emailed in advance. Bookings close one day before the event.
