March 19 2014Jane Lewis - Corsets & Cameras - Identifying Photos From 19C Costume
Jane Lewis from Surrey History Centre will speak on 'Corsets & Cameras - 19C photographic identification'. Here is your chance to get expert guidance on those mystery family photos we all have languishing around - perhaps you could bring one along if it has proved particularly challenging.
April 16Ian Waller - Debts, Debtors & Bankrupts
Room 28 in the quadrangle (as February). Ian Waller will speak on "Debts, Debtors & Bankrupts". Regrettably a surprising number fell into financial difficulties, which may well lead to a determined effort to cover up the family location as they swiftly moved from house to house overnight. Have you lost an ancestor in the census - perhaps they were hiding under a name change, or even had gone abroad to escape debtor's prison. Come & get ideas for how & where to track them down.
May 21Dr Judy Hill - Emigration From 19C Surrey
Dr Judy Hill will return to speak on "Emigration from 19c Surrey". This original topic will investigate those who were "pushed or pulled" to pastures new, where they went & how to locate them. Dr Hill has done ground breaking research at the Surrey History Centre, & this should be a stimulating angle on researching the conditions under which the decision to emigrate was taken.
June 18John Owen Smith - All Tanked Up - Canadian Soldiers in our Area - Commemoration of 70th Anniversary of D Day
John Owen Smith will speak on "All Tanked Up" - concerning the Canadian Army located in our general area prior to the D Day landings in June 1944. This will coincide with the 70th anniversary, & discuss where they were located, & the impact on the community. This promises to be a stirring tale in a memorable year for major wartime commemorations.
