Deeds and other documents concerning property transactions contain a wealth of information of use to genealogists, but it is sometimes difficult for researchers to access this information because such records are rarely digitised and can be difficult to understand.

Likewise, highly useful records of the civil courts such as Chancery and the Common Pleas present unique challenges for researchers due to the way they are arranged and the complexities of legal process. 

In this webinar, Dr Nicholas Dixon will explain how it is possible to locate and use such records to take forward family history research. Drawing upon his extensive experience of using these records, he will offer practical advice about how the obstacles can be overcome.

  • The workshop will be hosted on Zoom and begin at 6.30pm UK time on 29 May 2024.
  • It will last 1 hour 30 mins (inclusive of questions time).
