You can book a free pilot session on parish records which will be held on Saturday 2nd April 1.30 – 4.30pm via Zoom.
This online workshop will provide an introduction to parish records and show how they can be used to explore your family history. Key record series will be introduced and attendees will be encouraged to look ‘beyond’ the parish registers for information.
The workshop will include a case study and attendees will be asked to examine a number of documents in order to gather information about an individual and think about which other records they could use to find out more about their West Sussex ancestors.
Even if you are already familiar with parish records it will be an interesting experience and will help the Record Office.
Anyone who would like to take part in this pilot session should email firstname.lastname@example.org so that the Zoom link can be sent in due course.
The trial workshop is described in more detail on page 3 of the January Researcher.
