Meet The Speaker, Karen


After completing a History degree, Karen Evans taught in Primary schools before retiring in 2015. She has written two ‘Grim Almanac’ books for the History Press and currently write for Family Tree Magazine on all things genealogical! Karen's love and enthusiasm for history was the impetus for all her talks, be it Regency dancing or using DNA in her own research.

Preparing for the Event

For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

We also recommend that pets are either calmly sitting on your lap or in another room, and any refreshments you may require are within your reach!
