Tracing Your House History

Many people would like to find out more about the history of their house and if this sounds like you then there is a great book that is both compact and filled with practical information.  The book is equally of interest to those who live in a manor house or a small cottage cottage, a tied house, a two up and two down Victorian terrace, a twentieth-century council house or even a converted warehouse

In Tracing Your House History the author, Gill Blanchard, shows the reader how to trace the history of their home be it a house or a flat. All this is done in a series of concise, information-filled chapters that will help you understand the lives of the people who lived in your home before you as well as understanding how to fit what you discover into the wider history of your city, town or village.

Gill Blanchard explores what can be found in a wealth of historical evidence that is available to researchers in libraries, archives and record offices as well as in books and in online resources. The book looks at these resources in detail and explains their significance before pointing the researcher towards finding the most relevant, and revealing, aspects of them. Gill has made the research process understandable, accessible and fun in this book, and she manages to demystify the sometimes obscure language and layout of the documents that people doing their house history will come up against.

The Family History Show – Online will be live on Saturday 20 June 2020. Following closely the format of the very successful live shows, it will feature an online lecture theatre, the popular ‘Ask the expert’ area – where you can put questions forward to their specialists – as well as a whole host of stalls where you can ask for advice as well as buy genealogical products.

The organisers, having cancelled the physical show that would have taken place at York this weekend, have made it possible for people from all over the world to now "visit" the virtual stalls of more than 85 vendors ranging from Family History Societies to Genelogical Suppliers.

Through the wonders of modern technology attendees will be able to talk to some of the stallholders by text, audio or video to ask for advice and help with their family history society or business. You can also purchase from the online stalls their downloadable products that can help you in your research.

A virtual theatre will be running various talks throughout the day from the speakers who would have been at the physical event, had the pandemic not got in the way.

Put this Saturday in your diary so that you don't miss this online family history show.

Tickets to attend the online Family History Show are available for just £5.50 each. All ticket holders will also receive a digital Goody Bag worth over £10 on the day.
