We are delighted to welcome to our Family History Day:

Mrs Elaine Henderson whose Talk will be “Harassment from Heaven: Wills and Probate in two Cornish parishes c1750-1850”.

Based on the recent work by volunteer researchers for the Victoria County History Trust of Cornwall, the talk looks in detail at the wills of residents of two very different parishes: the rural St Stephen-in-Brannel and the prosperous town of Launceston.

and Mr John Jolliff our afternoon Speaker whose Talk will be “Cornwall’s Secret Army”.  During the dark days of 1940 Britain made preparations for invasion by the enemy. Local units in the West Country were established whose men were to go into hiding and carry out acts of sabotage and guerrilla warfare when the invading army arrived.

During the lunchbreak, Mr Bruce Johns introduces his book “The Dancer and the Drum” and speaks about his project tracing his ancestors’ journey from Redruth to varying degrees of prosperity (or its reverse) in the capital.

Please come along to enjoy a truly interesting and informative day in friendly company!
