Tracing the stories of Baptists 


The Friends of the Angus Library is sponsoring a special series of online seminars that will share the stories of Baptist women, as well as giving tips on how to write the history of a church and trace the stories of our Baptist ancestors 


Friends of Angus800

Are you interested in writing a history of your church, but you are not sure where to find the material or what to include in the written story?

Are you doing research on your family history and you have discovered the names of some of your Baptist ancestors, and you would like to know more about them? 

The Friends of the Angus Library (FOTA) are sponsoring a special series of online seminars that may be of interest to you.


25 February

Karen Smith (Cardiff University) 
'Do You Know Her Name?' Discovering the Stories of Baptist Women


4 March

Faith Bowers (Bloomsbury Baptist Church) and Chris Voke (Spurgeon's College)

11 March

For further details and to reserve a place, contact Friends of the Angus at fota@regents.ox.ac.uk, using the subject line 'Opening the Angus' 

There is no charge for the seminars, though any donation to FOTA to support the digitisation and conservation programme of materials in the Angus would be very much appreciated.
