On­line Lon­don re­sources for fam­ily his­tory

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - News -

Lon­don is much more than the cap­i­tal of Eng­land, it is also a global city with a his­tory stretch­ing back to the Ro­man Em­pire. In the early 1900s more peo­ple lived in the County of Lon­don, than in Scot­land. To­day, how­ever, much of the area is now lo­cated in the county of Mid­dle­sex. Try­ing to nav­i­gate the myr­iad of fam­ily his­tory re­sources for Lon­don is not straight­for­ward and it is im­por­tant to know some of the city’s his­tory to help put the records into con­text, and to know where they might be lo­cated.

Jenny Joyce will be the guest speaker at the next Hawkesbury Fam­ily His­tory Group meet­ing on Wed­nes­day, 11 Oc­to­ber and she will ex­plain on­line Lon­don re­sources. A lot of fam­ily his­tory records can now be found on­line in­clud­ing births, deaths and mar­riage reg­is­ters, cen­sus records, news­pa­pers, wills, crim­i­nal records and much more. Jenny will show us where to find this in­for­ma­tion to learn more about fam­i­lies who lived in this great city.

Jenny Joyce has been re­search­ing her own fam­ily his­tory for many years, and is also a pro­fes­sional re­searcher, lec­turer, teacher and writer. She is cur­rently the Pres­i­dent of Ku-ring- gai His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety.

Any­one in­ter­ested is en­cour­aged to at­tend this free event. The meet­ing starts at 10am and book­ings are not re­quired. Re­fresh­ments are avail­able af­ter the meet­ing. The Li­brary is lo­cated at 300 Ge­orge Street, Wind­sor.
