Discovery, our online catalogue, is the key to all the records held in The National Archives, a treasure trove for family historians.
In this session we will show you how to use it effectively for your research. You will learn about simple and advanced searches, how to browse, how to find out more about the records we hold, and how you can access them. Discovery and our online research guides also tell you about records and indexes held elsewhere that will interest you.
|Fri 30 Sep 2016||18:00 to 19:00|
Webinars are online only events.
