My Eminent Ancestors

In this presentation Laurie shares branches of his family that he discovered who were military heroes and Members of Parliament.

He also came across families with coats of arms.

This is the story of that discovery and the sources that I used to build their family trees.

This talk is free to members of Berkshire Family History Society, and we request a donation of £5 from non-members
