Catalogues, Collections and ArChives Seminar

Guild contact: Alan Moorhouse
A visit to Canterbury, the home of Canterbury Cathedral Archives, whose records go back to the 8th century about which Cressida Williams, Canterbury Cathedral Archivist, will give the first talk. This will be followed by talks on “Canterbury in the 15th Century”, “Probate Records and East Kent’s unrivalled Collections” and “When in Want or Distress: The Records of the Parish Overseer”. Talks on techniques are always popular so we include “Analysing Your Data”.
