SAHAAS Seminar Programme, January to April 2019

Dates and joining instructions - updated

By Kate Morris

Following the announcement in the November Newsletter, the dates for the first term of the Society’s proposed research seminar programme has now been set for:

24th January - Life in St Albans during the Napoleonic Wars. Led by Kate Morris (The original topic has been postponed due to illness to 25 April)

21st February - The beginnings of state education and St Albans’ first Board School. Led by Philippa Hurst

21st March - Town gardens in St Albans, with The Vintry as a leading example. Led by Liz Rolfe

25th April - Why did the inn trade in St Albans decline so markedly between 1660 and 1850? Led by Jon Mein

All seminars will commence at 2.30pm and will be held in the Society’s Library at Sandridge Gate. A short presentation (around 15 minutes) will be followed by discussion and each session will finish at 3.30pm. No prior knowledge of the topic is required for participation - only the willingness to join in discussion with questions and / or relevant contributions from of their own research by participants. For those with little research experience, it is an opportunity to learn more about sources available for their own fields of interest as well as sparking interest in topics they may not yet have considered. It is also a good opportunity to meet others who are doing, or would like to do research into local history in its multitude of aspects.

Space is limited, though there is no charge to members*, so please register on giving your name, email address and phone number to ensure a place. Turning up on the day is not excluded but if there is no room, you could be turned away! Equally, if you have registered but find you cannot come, please cancel, so a place can be re-offered.

*Non members are welcome for a fee of £5.00 per seminar. Cheques payable to SAHAAS should be sent to me at 74 St Peter’s Street, St Albans AL1 3HG to guarantee a place.

Thank you, and happy researching!
