I've had a message from genealogist Paul Milner in the United States, who will be a fellow presenter on the forthcoming Unlock the Past genealogy cruise to the Baltic in July, about a series of webinars that he will be giving on English research. He is teaching four sessions in a program about the 'Big Four' Records of English Research for the Virtual Institute of Genealogy, with these happening on two upcoming Saturdays, 30th May and 6th June.

6 June 2015
