We hope to start offering our usual on-site talks, workshops, and special events at the record office in the months to come, but until then why not sign up to one of our new online events?

The first talk is our ‘Introduction to the Record Office’ – find out who we are and the services we offer, the collections we hold and how you can access them, whether in person at our office or remotely.

Online talk: ‘Introduction to the Record Office’ – Thursday 17th June, 7-8pm

Our second talk is the ever popular ‘Building History’ – from maps and plans to census records, tithes to old photos, discover sources for tracing the history of Derbyshire buildings. When was it built? How has it changed? Who lived/worked there?

Online talk: ‘Building History’ – Tuesday 27th July, 7-8pm

You can book your place through our Eventbrite page from 1st June. Our events are run via Microsoft Teams and we’ll email a link a day or so before the event.  Don’t worry if you don’t have the Teams app, you can take part as a guest.

  1. Will the talks be recorded? I’d really like to listen to this but I have another meeting at the same time.

  4. I am very interested in learning and becoming skilled in Paleography, are there any courses planned by yourselves for 2019.
    Please advise.
    Thank you.

    • Hullo. I can see below that we were asked this in 2017 and I replied that a palaeography event of some sort was likely to make a comeback – it is still likely, and the more people ask for it the more likely it becomes. That said, we have no planned palaeography sessions just yet.

      • Thank you for your quick response.
        My fingers are crossed to hear that with increased interest you will run a course next year.
        Kind regards,
        Pamela Macaree

  5. I’d like a course on reading old documents. You ran one a while ago over 4 sessions and I was already committed for the two most useful ones – so I couldn’t go.

    • Thanks, Andy. Yes, we have run a palaeography course twice now, and are likely to bring it back in future – that’s not a promise, but it’s something that all participants (including staff) enjoyed on the previous occasions, so I can’t see why not.
