Seminar events Widening Horizons Webinar Series *** this webinar series launched at 8.00pm [London, UK time] on Wednesday October 7th *** In place of the planned “in person” seminar at Solihull being run jointly by the Guild and the Local Population Studies Society this will now be a series of weekly ‘tools and techniques’ webinars and features six speakers looking at ways of collecting, analysing and interpreting data collected in the process of one-name or one-place studies, family history or local population analysis. The data is based mainly on UK records, but records from other countries are cited where appropriate. It will be possible to submit questions for speakers to respond to following each presentation. Presentations will be made beginning at 8.00pm [London, UK, time] on 6 consecutive Wednesdays starting on October 7th. Each lecture will be recorded and can be accessed from the links below about three days after the live event. The recordings along with any available slides and lecture notes will also be accessible from the Past Seminars box to the right of (or below on mobiles) your screen within a few days following each lecture. These materials will be accessible to the public for a period of several weeks at which time they will remain accessible to members logged into the website. We will use the usual communication channels to advise once each recording is made available in this manner. You will need to register to take part in each webinar.
