Learn about these specific types of records that offer very good sources for researching your rich and poor ancestors. In this half-day course, Caroline Gurney gives two talks. First talk: Manorial Records: 800 Years in the Lives of Your Ancestors Manorial records are a rich source of information about individuals and communities from the 12th to the 19th centuries, yet they are seriously underused by family historians. Caroline covers: - An overview of the manorial system; - The types of records available; - Where to find them; - How they can help you research your ancestors. Second talk: Property and Taxation Records: Sources for Researching Rich and Poor Ancestors Property and taxation records contain information about a wide range of people, not just the wealthy. Property records give details of occupants, neighbours, witnesses and other interested parties. Taxation affected people of quite modest means and those exempted may also be recorded. Caroline describes: - The records of most interest to family historians; - What they may reveal about your ancestors.
