Breaking Down Family History Brickwalls: Quick References for Common Questions

Else Churchill, the Society's Genealogist, introduces the standard guides and textbooks that the Society of Genealogists' staff and volunteers use for answering queries.

Here at the Society of Genealogists, we get questions every day from people tracking down ancestors and building family trees. Our staff and volunteers have some go to books and guides that help them quickly make good suggestions and set people off in the right direction. In this workshop Else Churchill, the Society's Genealogist, introduces the standard guides and textbooks that we use for answering queries.

This is one in a series of workshops aimed at breaking down brick walls. In each one, the tutor introduces a common topic or problem - one that often comes up during the Society’s regular consultations or advice sessions. The tutor's aim is to make sure that you know what you need to know so that you can tackle the problem.

Then, acting as a facilitator, the tutor opens up the session to the group, allowing questions and discussions about your genealogical queries that may (but not exclusively) be related to the topic under discussion.
