Tutorial - Looking at Life with IHGS Student Sarah Bryant

Wednesday 20th October 2021

Location: Online


Looking at Life by IHGS student Sarah Bryant   -   Wednesday 20 October at 2pm   

Sarah’s talk, entitled “Looking at Life” is a light-hearted case study tracing the life of a cinema organist in the twentieth century, making good use of newspapers of the time as well as official records, and utilising other sources of information that might not be considered as obvious genealogical sources.  It explores the reasons for the route taken in her research, the pitfalls and dead ends, the side-tracking - including a tantalising link with Hollywood – and coming back to records which had initially been sidelined.  

Sarah is an IHGS student and her professional background is varied – first working for an insurance company, then running a music shop, performing concerts around the country, and finally working for ACAS for twenty-one years, as a conciliator resolving employment disputes, and giving training talks to employers.
