Family History Workshop by Members
This months focus being Huguenot Ancestry
An On Line Members Meeting where you can hear about other members research experiences. Society member Sandra Robinson has kindly offered to run a Workshop focussed on researching Huguenot ancestry. Perhaps there is more Huguenot ancestry in our families than we realise, might we all have Huguenots in our line if we look deep enough and wide enough.
Ann is a Huguenot ancestry specialist. She is on the Council (governing body) of the Huguenot Society of Great Britain and Ireland, and is consultant genealogist to the Huguenot Museum in Rochester. She was Huguenot ancestry expert for BBC’s WDYTYA? (Joe Sugg, Nov 2021).
Sandra speaks French, Dutch, Flemish and German and is familiar with searching records in France, Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany, as well as the usual English-language records on both sides of the Atlantic, these being countries from which Huguenots (and Walloons) originated, or to which they fled to escape persecution.
Please get in touch by email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a query or are stuck somewhere and we will raise it in the workshop.
These meetings are always fairly loose format and will go where they lead. If you would like to make a contribution, please get in touch. You do not need to be an experienced researcher.
The success of the format is entirely dependent upon the members. It is in your hands. Many people have asked if we will be running any Zoom meetings in the future, now is your chance to help out.
An Online event using Zoom. Visit this page to find out how we do it.
