The Quest for your English Ancestors - free webinar July 11 by Claire V. Brisson-Banks

WebinarlogoGot English ancestors? Don't miss this free webinar held Wednesday, July 11 at a special time, by Claire Brisson-Banks, an accredited genealogist (AG) in English research. English civil, church, and census records make doing research back to 1837 feasible. Pre-1837 research requires more skill and a greater knowledge of the variety of little-known resources which can take you back to the 1600’s and earlier. Add to that the variety of Internet resources and English research becomes a joy to perform.
