This course will reveal the research process our tutor followed when uncovering the 350 year old story of his cottage in Norfolk. As well as recounting the tales of previous owners and residents, Stephen will outline the procedures and resources involved in investigating the background of any historic property using online and archive sources. There will also be an opportunity to learn how to read and interpret copies of original historical documents, deeds and census reports to assist anyone who wishes to set out on their own journey of historical discovery.
