Family History Event – Reading the Original

March 18 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Hints for deciphering old documents – Talk by Jackie Depelle.

A Family History Federation speaker who is based in Leeds, Jackie Depelle will be ‘Zooming’ our Group to talk about ‘Reading the Original’ on March 18th.

Jackie is an experienced specialist Family History tutor and has given presentations at major international events. She is also a member of the Guild of One Name Studies, British Association for Local History and many Family History Societies.

If you are interested in tips on how best to transcribe (and decipher) old handwriting, whether it be in an original Victorian Census Return, or a manuscript possibly dating as far back as the Magna Carta, you will undoubtedly find her talk of interest!

The talk takes place in person and, for members only, on Zoom, at the Fromus Centre, Street Farm Road, Saxmundham, IP17 1AL (behind the Library).

The talk starts at 2.30pm.

No need to book – just turn up — at £1.00 for members, £3.00 for visitors, including tea/coffee/biscuits.

Good, free car-parking.
