Ian Waller: In & Out of London
4th March 2022
By Sue Pillans
This year the Education and Events team will be joining with our Special Interest Groups to host a series of sessions with well reknown speakers. The sessions are a great opportunity to meet the experts and learn first hand about their research field.
The English and Welsh SIG is hosting our first session: In and Out of London by Ian Waller.
Many researchers find it difficult and somewhat daunting when their ancestors move into or around London as research in the capital has its own challenges.
Ian Waller will be sharing his experiences in researching London family history and giving us tips and tricks to overcome those challenges.
