Our family histories are not necessarily filled with saints but with a scrambled assortment of characters; some good, some not so good and others we would rather not sit on our family tree at all! We will look at records from the everyday crimes and misdemeanors in all families to the shocking revelations your ancestors often went to great lengths to hide. Practical tips and case studies will form the basis of the course.

Suitable for all levels.
