Like us, our ancestors were repeatedly taxed and often asked to register for some level of military service but, unlike us, they were often asked to assert their loyalty either to church or state. This talk will run through a whole range of sources, some covering all males, some covering all householders including women and some covering everybody except the very poor.

2.30 – 3.00 Afternoon Tea

3.00 – 4.00 Nick Saunders – How to Research Individuals Through Military Records.

Nick will discuss how to research WW1 and WW2 relatives. In his talk he will show how to make sense of the material available on Ancestry and Find My Past and  how to use war diaries and other primary sources.  He will also cover  the use of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website,  contemporary newspaper reports, and regimental archives and museums.

4.00 Wrap Up and Close
