A full house for a lesson in history

FAMILY history researchers have picked up a few tips from one of Britain's foremost authorities in genealogical research Lady Mary Teviot.

Lady Teviot visited Ipswich recently for an information session for a full house at the Barry Jones Auditorium.

The leading expert was involved with family history research for 43 years.

She was President of the Federation of Family History Societies in the UK from 2001 to 2011 and is now a lifetime Vice-President and operates her own company Census Searches Ltd.

This professional genealogical research company undertakes research into family history, probate and media research and featured in the very successful second and third series of Heir Hunters on BBC1 television - the show that traces missing and unknown heirs.

Each year Lady Teviot tours countries in the British Commonwealth to lecture on family history research.
