Ancestors in Print Webinar Series Seminar 3 Posted 4 February 2021 by Karen Burnell Wednesday 10 February 2021 at 8pm (GMT) is the next date for your diary, when we will turn our attention to Ephemeral Names: printed ephemera as a resource for one-name historians with particular reference to the John Johnson Collection at the Bodleian Library, Oxford. This seminar will be led by the collection’s Librarian Julie Anne Lambert. The talk will highlight the usefulness of ‘printed ephemera’ to the one-name family historian – all those bits of paper that our ancestors thankfully didn’t throw away! It will take a two-pronged approach, looking first at the various genres covered by the term ‘ephemera’, and then exploring the sorts of names that you might find, such as tradesmen, actors and entertainers, printers, artists, politicians, etc. Julie Ann will also show you how to use the finding aids of the John Johnson Collection, both from the perspectives of librarians and users, as well as provide information about finding similar resources elsewhere. This event will be hosted by Stephen Daglish, our thanks to Stephen and Julie Ann for their time and support. You need to register for this event, but if you can’t make it you will be able to find a recording on the Guild website soon afterwards.
