    Joe is joined by Kelly Cornwell, professional family historian, blogger and speaker, Jane Hough, amateur genealogist and blogger, and Margaret Roberts, editor of the Playing Pasts online sports history magazine and Publicity Officer for the FHS of Cheshire.

    During the pandemic of 2020-1 many events in the family history world moved online and it looks as though many meetings, talks and conferences will have an online element ongoing. We discuss the excitement and variety of online family history events and how attendees and organisers can get the most out of them.

    Series 1 Episode 1: Occupations

    In this episode of the Really Useful Podcast, Joe Saunders is joined by Mish Holman, professional genealogist who is particularly interested in theatre ancestors and census enumerators, Mike Esbester, academic historian and co-lead on the Railway Work Life and Death Project and Judith Batchelor, professional genealogist, writer and tutor at IHGS.

    Work affected our ancestors and shaped their fortunes. Occupational records can be used to research your family history and give a fuller picture of their lives. Among other things our speakers touch upon the need to think about women’s work, what drew people to certain occupations and offer some top tips for researching.
