March 2024 LSEW Group Meeting

By Hammer

We had a very busy March meeting in which Peter Hamersley presented two case studies demonstrating some thinking outside the box. The first showed how records are not always as they seem: An error in Royal Navy records led to discoveries in the 1841 Census.

The second demonstrated many ways of using Rate-payer records to aid our research - especially when Parish Registers are not available.

We also held our AGM. Peter Hamersley was returned as Convenor, with Robyn O’Brien and Robert Holloway forming our Committee. Thank you to both Robyn and Robert.
