Private tour of the Society of Genealogists Library EC1M 7BA
12pm
Five hundred years ago in Wittenberg in 1517 Martin Luther challenged the Roman Catholic Church’s teachings. The consequences of his dissent set off shock waves throughout Europe. France initially was highly receptive to the theology of Jean Calvin, a far more fundamentalist reformer than Luther. Confrontations between the Huguenots, as French Protestants were called, and their loyally Catholic monarchs led to wars and persecution. Over 200 years, an estimated 50,000 Huguenots came to Britain and they have left descendants at all levels of society.
 
In this half-day course Kathy Chater looks at the Huguenots in Britain including how to establish descent from these refugees and how to take research further back to France.
 
Cost £20.00, includes tea/coffee/biscuits. Places can be booked through the Society of Genealogists website:
