Do you have you a Jones, a Davies or a Thomas in your family tree? Do you know the difference between Aberhonddu and Brecon? Did your ancestors worship at chapel or at church? Did your ancestors move to or from Wales?

Join Gill Thomas for a half-day course focusing on researching Welsh ancestry.

Gill will help you to discover more about the lives and the places in which your ancestors lived, covering how to access records online and documents in archives.

The course includes:

  • Civil and ecclesiastical records, with a focus on non-conformity
  • Surnames
  • Monumental inscriptions and pre-census records
  • Traditional Welsh occupations such Merchant Navy service and Mining

Can't make this time? Book anyway as this talk will be recorded and available to watch for 2 weeks.
