Until the early 1840s, most Cornish women and men were not fully literate, and many still spoke a form of Celtic. Church and other records suffered as a result, because the Clerk might not understand the names being pronounced or scribbled. Yet, the history of the Dutchy is wonderful. This session highlights tips and traps for using Cornish resources in family history. 

Presenter:   Peter Trebilco
