Latin for Family Historians Course

This two-part course will provide a very basic introduction to the Latin used in some local history documents, especially parish registers and probate records. It is intended to give family historians a start in acquiring enough Latin to translate documents they frequently encounter, and on which they can build advanced skills to translate more complex documents.

Two sessions: Sep 3rd and 10th, both sessions 11am – 1pm

Tickets cost £20 (members £18). Pre-booking is required because full joining instructions will be emailed in advance. Bookings close one day before the event.

To be able to join in this course, you will need a computer device from which you can access your emails. This device also needs to have speakers and ideally a microphone and webcam.  First-time users of Zoom, will be asked to download a small piece of software. This will be sent to you in advance. If you are unsure whether you can access Zoom, and would like technical help, please contact
