House Histories Online Course

For those interested in the history of their own home

Researching the history of a house can be both exciting and rewarding, revealing fascinating stories of those that lived there before you. Do you have a house that you are interested in knowing more about, have you come up against a dead end or do you just want to know how to approach the subject? 

If so, then this course will help you reveal people, dates, events and much more using familiar resources like the census, but also introduce you to the less familiar such as the national Farm Survey, ‘Modern Domesday’, the 1910 Inland Revenue valuation survey, rate books, tithe records, local authority records, sales particulars and auction catalogues. You will be welcome to bring your housing project to these sessions.

Two sessions: June 19th & 26th 

Both sessions: 11am - 1pm

Course Tutor: Dr Margaret Simons
