      For social and family historians: Suicide in the Family?

      Attitudes to suicide have changed over the centuries, yet the subject is still surrounded by shame and guilt. A suicide is often hushed up in a family.

      Kathy Chater examines the way suicide was perceived in the past and how this has affected what records were kept. Kathy also provides ways to find out whether an ancestor who disappeared in mysterious circumstances might have killed him or herself. In addition, Kathy shares some new insights that may cast light on why people in the past might have taken their own lives.

      There are no special entry requirements and you do not need to be a Member of the Society of Genealogists. Expect a friendly atmosphere, an expert speaker and lots of detail.

      Cost: Payment required - £8.00; discounted for Members of Society of Genealogists £6.40
