Searching beyond these Shores is the subject of the next talk to Oxfordshire Family History Society, next Monday evening, August 4th, at Exeter Hall, Kidlington. The talk is given by Christopher Fance, who has relatives who live in the United States, Canada, Australia, Zimbabwe and Turkey. His researches have also involved looking for relatives and others in Ireland, India, Burma, New Zealand and South Africa.
Using the internet has provided Christopher with a lot of useful information. Sometimes, it is possible to solve question such as “What happened to Tom or Freda?”, or other similar mysteries. Christopher’s illustrated talk will show how to access some of the sources he has used in the hope it will help others.
The boys in the photo were Harold and Ted, part of Christopher’s family, who were born in Southend-on-Sea and emigrated to Canada in 1909.
