Teaching an old dog old tricks.

At the AGM 2018 I purchased one of the surplus books from the Society Library. At 20p it was too good to pass over and it had so many interesting subjects, which I had still to learn their value.

It's a copy of English Genealogical Congress, Selected papers given at the Congress of 1978 and 1984. Published by English Genealogical Congress c/o Society of Genealogists, 1986, ISBN 0901878820.

There are 19 papers some of which I think are still current and worth recalling.

Part I selection.

1) 'Genealogy and the Medieval Histories' by Michael Maclagan.

Michael Maclagan, who died aged 89 in 2003, was a historian of early medieval England and Byzantium, an eminent authority on genealogy and heraldry, and for more than 40 years a tutor in Modern History at Trinity College, Oxford.

2) 'Between Conquest and Cromwell: Some Suggestions on sources for Medieval Genealogy' by Richard Swanson
