Furnishing your Ancestors House – Biographical and family history is much more than lists of names and genealogical charts. It is about getting to know the person by exploring their lives and considering when, where and how they lived. One of the ways you can do this is through research into their homes and possessions. Join Christine Yeats as she discusses the range of printed and archival resources available to researchers to help discover how your ancestors may have furnished their houses.
