Following the success of last year’s introductory sessions on how to read old documents and how to interpret old title deeds, Denbighshire Archives is holding two further sessions on the mornings of 4 and 18 February, from 10am until 12pm.
Archivist, Jane Brunning, explained: “Old documents can be a valuable
source of information for people who may be researching their family history or
the history of their house or street but they can be tricky to the
“We hope these sessions will give people an insight into how to
read old documents, which can shed a unique light on times past if you know what
you’re looking for.”
The session on 4 February will be devoted to practical
demonstrations of how to read a selection of documents from the 16th and 17th
centuries, and the session on 18 February will delve into the mysteries of legal
documents from the 16th to the 20th century.
Both events are free, but as
places are limited, booking is essential.
If you have an old document at home
that you cannot read, or you are just be interested in learning a new skill,
book yourself a place and come along to the Gaol. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or
