Getting more out of Ancestry and Findmypast Online Workshop
For Family and Social Historians
Interested in family history? Ancestry and Findmypast (FMP) are two of the most commonly used websites to aid research - but are you getting the most out of them?
In this online workshop using Zoom, 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. Tutor, Tony Wright, 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.
Tickets cost £10 (members of Berkshire Family History Society £9). Pre-booking is required as full joining instructions will be emailed in advance. Bookings close one day before the event.
