40th Anniversary 1980 - 2020

FREE: On the Wrong Side of the Law Seminar


From big time villain to petty thief, we can probably all find one or two ancestors who didn’t manage to keep on the straight and narrow. We return to this West Country venue to discover more about the working of the criminal justice system, the court and prison records that will help us track down individuals, including those sent abroad, and to explore the fascinating links between crime writing and genealogy.

The Guild of One-Name Studies are delighted to offer a web based version of this seminar; not quite as originally planned, but definitely of interest, especially if you are looking to see if any of your own family fell foul of the law.

The webinar is free to access for the next 7 days.
