In one-hour sessions, the group will look at a selection of typical formats of document that you may find from the 16th to 19th century, and we will see common ways of writing particular letters, abbreviations and phraseology.

This session will focus on Parish records including parish registers, a key source for family and local history, plus account books kept by parish officials.
