Advanced Genealogy and Family History Workshop: Vicki Manners

"This course is designed for students who have attended the genealogy, family and house history courses in terms 1 and 2 and is an opportunity to bring in any genealogy, family and house history research you are undertaking yourself and seek help and guidance, particularly if you have come across a stumbling block or can’t find the records you are looking for. You will have the opportunity to use and research items from Vicki's extensive genealogy collection (for example she has over 400 maps and postcards relating to Bedfordshire) as well as access to genealogy records online. (Maximum 10 per class)"
