Look for me - I'll be teaching two of my favourite sessions!

Ancestry and Findmypast, how to use them 

Both Ancestry and FindMyPast are essential to building your family tree. But searching for and locating correct records in these giant websites can be overwhelming. Learn strategies for making the most efficient use of each, and tips for keeping ahead as these websites grow.

Where are the women in my family?

Researching women can be frustrating - women's own names and activities are often missing from official sources. Learn how to use cluster genealogy to identify and locate mothers, sisters and wives, and how to find and interpret less known records to uncover women's relationships.
