    A very useful overview of the updated website and how to get the best out of it. Also info re the massive range of records that can be ordered through family history centres. I didn’t know they had probate indexes and records and a huge range of overseas records.

    I have been using to a small extent. You can save the records you find (a bit like FindMyPast.)

    Another thing that will be useful is a map with overlays so you can find a parish and find out what diocese or registration district it is in.

    It was very helpful having the slides.
