The Talk

The basic research strategy for building a family tree is to work from the Known to the Unknown however it can be difficult to make connections back to census records. Now the 1921 census is available that can be worked in conjunction with other documents which can be used to provide details of our ancestors’ lives across this potentially awkward time period.  This talk reviews several identifying chronological timelines which can help keep our research focussed.  Many are obvious, some perhaps unexpected as a sample case study reveals picking up from First World War Internment.  Join us to see what pieces of the jigsaw can be found and how they come together to illustrate the possibilities in researching comparatively recent lives.

The Speaker

From film and fiche to the virtual world, Jackie teaches Family History and presents at major international events including RootsTech, The Genealogy Show and The Family History Show. Thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to meet people from across the country via zoom as well as listening and learning from colleagues at online shows and tutorials. Jackie also keeps in touch with volunteers through membership of the Guild of One Name Studies, British Association for Local History, various Family History Societies across the UK and Historians Collaborate.
