For Family Historians: Effective Record Keeping

With family history research, you need to keep proper records. Ian Waller has lots of ideas and advice.

No matter how much family history research you do, you need to keep proper records to avoid ending up in a muddle or duplicating your work. They can be on paper or on a computer. Ian Waller has lots of ideas and advice.

Topics covered:
- Methods for keeping records;
- What is essential to record;
- How to get the best from your research.

There are no special entry requirements for this workshop and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists to attend. Anyone researching their family and building a family tree will find it very useful. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert tutor and lots of detail. Tea and coffee are provided during a break in the morning.

About Ian Waller: Ian is currently Chairman of AGRA (The Association of Genealogists and Researchers in Archives), the body which represents professional genealogists throughout England and Wales. He is a Fellow of the Society of Genealogists and has published several books in the Society’s “My Ancestor” series. He teaches Family History workshops at both basic and advanced levels across the country.

About the Society of Genealogists, the National Family History Centre: We were founded in 1911. Ever since then we've been collecting family history documents, long before the arrival of local record offices - even typewriters were new. The Society is the UK-wide repository for family history documents and records. So, we like to think we know a bit about record keeping.
