Where there’s a will there’s usually an argument

Local and family historian Sue Ellis will be giving us an insight into how to interpret wills. She explains where you can find them, what the stock phrases are, how you interpret the contents and what the mysterious word “admons” means.  She also looks at how the inventories of people’s possessions give us an invaluable insight into our ancestors’ lives and show how different they were from our own.

The meeting is free to members.

We require a donation of £3 from non-members. Pre-booking is not essential, but is useful for us to see in advance the numbers who will be attending, as space at the museum is limited.

Please note that as this is a face to face talk, prevailing Coronavirus precautions will be in place. Please see: https://berksfhs.org/face-to-face-events-covid-security/
