  MLFHS Talk Civil Registration

Held in the performance space Manchester Central Library at 10:30 am

John Marsden will discuss civil registration of births, marriages and deaths. The talk will examine the background to the introduction of civil registration and how the system operates. John will explain how to find an event using both online and offline indexes and examine the information provided by BMD certificates and where this might lead your research. Finally he will suggest ways you might save some money (or at least waste less!) by using online and offline resources to improve your searches or even avoid the need to buy a certificate at all.

John Marsden is standing in for Jean Newman who is unable to present this talk as originally scheduled.

This talk is free to MLFHS members, £3 to non-members (refundable if you join MLFHS on the day).

Anglo Scottish Branch Meeting

Irish Records. They all when up in smoke, or did they 

Jill Williams

We know that Irish records were burnt during the Four Courts fire in 1922, so making Irish research very difficult.  Jill will be talking about what happened to the records and the alternatives that are available today so we may research into the lives our Irish ancestors.

Booking essential on Eventbrite using link on Society web page.

Metting will be held in PS1
