The fourth talk I have schedule for the coming weeks and the last for this year will be on Thursday 24 October 2019 to the Fenland Family History Society based in Wisbech. This will be yet another opportunity to hear my A Most Notorious, Naughty. False. Lying Fellow – A Global Black Sheep, or Maligned Character talk giving Henry Smith his third outing this year. After two centuries of obscurity, the limelight will be going to his head.
The Fenland Family History Society covers the former Isle of Ely, parts of South Lincolnshire and West Norfolk – the Fenlands that have their own character and challenges for family historians. The society aims to promote and encourage the preservation, security and accessibility of archival material and has a strong working relationship with the Wisbech and Fenland Museum, which unusually holds some of the areas parish registers. More details on membership and meetings can be found on their website at: fenlandfhs.org.uk.
My talks start up again early in the New Year and include two I have not mentioned so far:
- My Ancestor Was A Pirate – Pirates of the Caribbean, the Sequel
- The Long Paper Trail – The Papers Discovered In An Attic
