Genealogy and Royalty

Tracing Members of the Royal Household and Connections to the British Monarchy


From serving monarchs in a personal capacity to receiving royal pardons, there are numerous ways in which non-royal individuals and families interacted with the British monarchy over the centuries. This talk will explain how genealogists can find connections with royalty using a wealth of archival and online resources. It will include discussion of the copious records of the Royal Household as well as the information that might be discovered in bona vacantia records, official gazettes, court circulars, registers of the chapels royal and the patent rolls. Participation in events such as coronations, jubilees and royal visits will also be considered.

Can't make this time? Book anyway as this talk will be recorded and available to watch for 2 weeks.
