The talk's aim, by using basic records, birth, marriage, death and censuses, with perhaps a look at maps and parish registers, to also investigate the people who surrounded our ancestors and by doing this to help prove the facts that we have on each ancestor but also to build up a broad picture of their lives so that we do not end up with a list of names and dates but a picture of how they lived. I also like to emphasise that our ancestors may have made decisions or done things which we may disapprove of but they lived by different rules and social conventions.
