Parish Registers by Les Mitchinson
Les Mitchinson is a professional genealogist and the Director of Education at the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies, Canterbury.
Before establishing a successful Family History research and education business from his home in Petersfield, Hampshire, Les spent a full career in the Royal Navy. Now living within easy reach of the Portsmouth History Centre, Hampshire Archives and The National Archives Kew, he finds all aspects of Family History engaging, but singles out military records as his favourite area of research.
A knowledgeable and highly entertaining speaker, who has appeared on the US version of "Who Do You Think You Are?", Les will deliver a talk entitled "Parish Registers – A Walk Through History" to the group’s meeting on Monday, 17th May, starting at 7.30 p.m.
As experienced family historians will know, parish registers have the potential to take your research back to Tudor England. This fascinating talk, recently voted for by our members from a long list of potential topics, walks the audience through the plague, English Civil War and much, much more.
This is definitely one to get in your diary!’
