Webinar Wednesday: Parish registers
September 25 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
$15 – $20
Prior to the introduction of civil registration in 1837 in Britain, parish registers were the main source of genealogical information for births, marriages and burials. From 1538, it was ordered that each parish keep its own register but this did not become commonplace until much later.
In this webinar, you will discover more about the value of these books and how much information they hold which can add so much value to your family history research, beyond the dates.
Presenter: Annalies Nutley
For many years I have been uncovering the mysteries of people’s past and uncovering the stories of their life. It all began when my dad and I looked into our own family history; after just a few hours I was hooked and perhaps a year later I decided to start my own business. It has been my favourite career choice to date, and I can’t imagine now doing anything else. In May 2015, after almost 8 years running my professional genealogical business, I decided to earn some “genealogical” academic credentials and began studies with the National Institute for Genealogical Studies at the University of Toronto in Canada. I completed 2 years of study in April 2017, graduating with a Distinction in all 3 fields – Australian Records, English Records & Methodology. It proved to me the scale of this industry and how many resources are truly at our hands if we have the knowledge behind us. I plan to continue my professional development with the University for many years to come.
