1, 14 & 18 August Talks

Buckinghamshire. Bucks Family History Society’s (FHS) talks cover a range of topics in August, starting with Coping with Kew in which Gwyneth Wilkie provides an introduction to The National Archives, including what you may hope to get from TNA’s holdings, which records are accessible at home and which on site, and how to use Discovery (1 August, 7.30pm, Bletchley). In Parish Registers Online, Peter Christian will survey the wide range available online for all parts of the British Isles, and examine the great advantages and shortcomings of these resources to help you make the most of them (14 August, 7.45pm, Bourne End). Finally, in Coram’s Children – The Story of The Foundling Hospital, Jane King will recount the struggle of Thomas Coram at the beginning of the 18th century to establish the Foundling Hospital – Britain’s first and only home solely for illegitimate children – and how the youngsters left there were brought up (18 August, 1.30-4pm, Aylesbury).
