Unexpected Sources for Local History

BALH regional conference

Albemarle Centre Taunton, Somerset, TA1 1BA

21st March 2020

The theme of the conference is “Unexpected Sources for Local History” and we are highlighting some unusual sources for local and family history.   We have a wide range of speakers, including Paul Dryburgh from the National Archives and Esther Hoyle from the South West Heritage Trust.  Subjects will include unusual items found in family archives, travel diaries, railway accidents and taxation records.  In addition to the talks there will be a small exhibition of Somerset maps and some original travel diaries on display.  Please see the BALH website for more details.

Lunch is included in the ticket price and bookings can be made on the BALH website https://www.balh.org.uk/taunton2020.

We intend to follow this, the first of our Annual Regional Conferences, with similar events in the Midlands, the North West, the North East, and Wales.
