We are delighted to be able to engage Kirsty Gray to give our opening talk of the autumn season: Kirsty has been involved in genealogy from a very young age and is now a fully-fledged professional genealogist, business owner, heir tracer, TV/radio personality, Genealogy Show Director, and more besides.

Many of us will have found ancestors who disappeared into the workhouse: what were these institutions?  Why were they feared so much? What happened behind the closed doors? Speaker: Kirsty Gray
