British Military Research
Presented by Paul Nixon
November 23 & 24, 2021
This two-day virtual conference will examine the role our British ancestors played in the service of their monarch and country. This will look at service between 1760 and 1945, with the main focus on the British Army between 1870 and 1945.
Day 1 will begin with an overview of the topics to be
covered and what survives online and offline. Two sessions will be dedicated to
service at sea and service in the air, before we move on to the British Army.
Day 2 will focus entirely on service in the British Army: how the army evolved, how it was organized, how we can be smart in using surviving source material to inform us about soldiers’ services.
Case studies will be referenced throughout the two-day
This 2 day virtual institute is being led by British Army expert Paul Nixon. Paul is the military columnist for our quarterly newsletter, British Connections. As well, Paul is the British Army expert at Findmypast. Paul runs the website British Army Ancestors.
All sessions are being recorded and access to the recordings will be available for 6 weeks after the live event.
