Breaking down brick walls in your family history research
with Mark Bayley, Online Genealogy Expert

How to resolve stumbling blocks in your family history research using new and unique search strategies to find those missing relatives. Includes searching for a family using just the individuals' forenames, keyword search tools; using criteria other than a name to search on and other advanced search techniques. The talk also covers unique data sets such as Non-Conformist records, Non-Parochial records, Fleet marriages, Will images, Parish Records, Directories, Newspapers and more.


Mark Bayley of TheGenealogist.co.uk discusses how to break down brick walls.

With exhibitors from all over the UK and Ireland, this is probably the largest event of its kind in England. Many family history societies and companies attend each year. There is lots of local history from the York area too.

You don't have to have Yorkshire Ancestors to come to this fair - they can be from anywhere at all! Everyone is very welcome and there is lots to see. There is plenty of parking and refreshments are available all day. There are several lifts to take you to the upper levels, and the whole place is wheelchair friendly.

Do you really know who you are? Come and find out - you may be surprised!
