Register for Down Under webinar: Uncovering the lives of your London (England) ancestors by Cathie Sherwood
It can be quite daunting to find your ancestors who lived in the Greater London area as records are held at numerous archives. Parishes number in the hundreds and surprisingly, many Londoners in the 18th and 19th centuries were quite mobile. This presentation will take you through a variety of record collections including birth, death, marriage, poor law and school records. Resources like Charles Booth’s poverty maps to find out more about where your ancestor lived will be discussed as will the various occupation guilds and trades.
