Meeting on Saturday, 16 March 2024 10:00 AM, via Zoom. Our speaker will be Claire Brisson-Banks, presenting "Finding Your Ancestors in British Manor Records." Register now for this meeting:

Claire Brisson-Banks is an experienced professional, educator, leader, genealogist, family historian, writer, technology consultant, marketing specialist, mentor, tutor and lecturer.

Claire Brisson-Bank will cover the variety of records created and available for those of you who are researching individuals born when the manors were the backbone of the feudal society. Medieval times were very difficult and very real day-to-day living. Community living on manor lands provided the ordinary person with a job, home, and food. Of course, it came with various responsibilities, but during this time, it was security. Most manors had their own court and dealt with everyday business, a court for legal offenses, and a church to record births, marriages, and deaths. Many records have survived and are in landed families and estates, along with various archives throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales.

Membership runs the calendar year. If you join after 1 October, your membership will expire at the end of the following year. (i.e. 1 October 2023-31 December 2024).
