Amelia Dyer and the baby farm murders: with Angela Buckley

On 30th March 1896, a bargeman recovered a parcel from the River Thames at Caversham.  Inside the brown paper package was the body of a baby girl - she had been strangled with tape.  When two more tiny bodies were found in a carpet bag, the police knew they had a serial killer at large.  Author and prominent genealogist, Angela Buckley, recounts the frantic race to stop one of Britain's most prolific serial killers.

This workshop is a follow-up to the April 14th meeting which provided an introduction to DNA testing. We will look at the interpretation of your DNA test results and how you can get the most out of your matches. Participants are encouraged to bring along their results and ask questions.

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop is already fully booked. Contact the Booking Administrator (see below) if you would like your name to be added to a waiting list, in case of any cancellations.

The society is looking at ways to run a further workshop or workshops — this may be best done by looking at different types of test, or by considering the outputs of particular test providers. Check back here soon, for details will be published once the event(s) is/are finalised.

This workshop is to look at your DNA test results so please be sure to have your results before the workshop. A computer will be required and a limited number of computers and laptops will be available if you don't have a laptop.
