Society of Genealogists

14 Charterhouse Buildings, Goswell Road
Greater London

Zoom talk In this 1-hour talk Caroline Gurney tells us about the three major archives in Bristol. For several centuries Bristol was England's second city, its prosperity built on the trans-Atlantic and slave trades. As the metropolis of the West, the city attracted many poor migrants from the rural hinterlands, Wales and Ireland. The size of the city, population mobility and poverty, combined with strong nonconformity and records in three archives, make Bristol research challenging. There are no special entry requirements and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert speaker and lots of detail.
