East Kent is rich in records for family historians and others and we visit Canterbury, home of Canterbury Cathedral Archives, whose records go back to the 8th century. We have assembled specialist speakers from the Kent area that should interest all attendees. With an optional visit to Canterbury Cathedral Archives and Library along with the possibility of a guided tour of the Cathedral this seminar will appeal to all.
