Even the luckiest of family historians will come up against brick walls from time to time. We've all experienced the feeling that our ancestors appeared from thin air. Dave Annal's talk will aim to show that everyone left a paper trail and that it's almost always possible to find it. It will introduce a number of strategies to help you get around the brick walls and dead ends in your research, paying particular attention to getting the most out of online databases and advanced techniques such as 'family reconstruction'.

Buckinghamshire Family History Society welcomes non-members to its Aylesbury talks (a small donation is appreciated).

Do you have an elusive ancestor? Our Buckinghamshire Names Database (over five million entries) and libraries are available for consultation at most of our Aylesbury meetings. Come along to see how the Society can help you.
