The next Trust Seminar will be held on 11th June 2011 at Ruishton Village Hall, near Taunton.
Entitled “Taking Your Family History Further”, it is aimed at those beyond the first flush of research and who are looking to extend their research. As with all the Seminars, it will be of interest to all family historians and specifically those looking to start or progress a one-name study.
A copy of the Booking Form for you to use, giving full details of the lecture programme and the speakers, will be available shortly. In the meantime, you can view the location of Ruishton Village Hall and directions for travelling there by following the link on the left.

Visit the Conference websiteIn 2009, in place of its annual seminar, the Halsted Trust hosted a 4-day Conference for family, social and local historians with the title “Open the Door & Here are the People“. Held at the prestigious East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham over the Bank Holiday weekend from 28th to 31st August, it was attended by over 200 people. With 4 sessions a day, each of which had up to 5 different presentations running in parallel for delegates to choose from, as well as renowned after-dinner speakers in the evenings, there was something for everyone.

As part of the Trust’s educational aims, it also sponsors seminars and lectures on one-name studies organised by other bodies, at which the Halsted Study is referred to where appropriate. The Trust is prepared to sponsor and support other initiatives and projects that make additional information available to assist in the research of one-name studies.
