How to use pauper letters
February 8, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
In this workshop, Dr Paul Carter (The National Archives) will work his way through letters and petitions from the poor during the 19th century which are held at The National Archives.
Paul will demonstrate why these letters were created, how they are arranged within the collection and most importantly, how to use them for your own research benefits.
