Is Your British Genealogy Already Completed?
Dr. Eakle was a member of the University of Utah Center for the Study of Historical Population and assigned to compile a descriptive inventory for the microfilm holdings for England at the Family History Library (then using its legal name—Genealogical Society of Utah). They read the whole shelf list for the Library looking for buried and hidden items in the collection. They personally checked over 35% of the 60,000 reels of microfilm for England. And compared what they found against the microfilmer's reports and the card catalog just to ensure that nothing of importance was missed. Arlene still has all of the notes they made—including the forms for each and every parish—Anglican and Non-Conformist. There are resources that have been compiled and preserved with much good research included. In this class Dr. Eakle will discuss the important collections available for your research, additions to the collections since the study was completed and more.
This presentation was recorded live for the "British Isles" Expo. The individual Research Guide for this class is included with this video. It is available to download as a PDF immediately upon purchase. If you would like a printed copy of the book, British Isles Research Guide, please click here.
