Red tape and sealing wax? Using old title deeds for local and family history

Monday 16 August, 6.00 pm-7.00 pm

This is an online talk using Zoom. Have you discovered that one of your ancestors, or a house you are researching, features in a bundle of parchment title deeds? Are you feeling defeated by line after line of repetitive text reading ‘whereas’ this, ‘whereas’ that, ‘of the one part’, ‘of the other part’? Help is at hand! This talk will show how most deeds fit into one of a few standard categories, and once you have understood how each type works, you can quickly jump to the key details to find out what they contribute to the story of a house or family.

All you need to attend a talk on Zoom is some basic computer skills and experience in using the internet. Don’t worry if you have not used it before, as we will send you some basic guidance when you book.
