All talks, anywhere via Zoom and in-person within a 50-mile radius of Derby. I have been carrying out genealogical/family history research for over 30 years. During that time, several talks have developed out of my research: Derby County Asylum; Annoying Ancestors; Australian Gold Rush; and The Last English Peer hanged for murder.

Alongside the talks, I also offer quizzes using vintage household items. They are not the usual question-based quiz but participants actually get to handle the vintage items whilst trying to determine what they are. This usually ensures that there is plenty of chatter and reminiscing.

NOTE: Zoom talks are discounted to £47.50. The household quizzes are currently not available but will be back on the agenda in Autumn 2022.
