Thanks to unexpected career change Jackie Depelle started designing and creating Family History activities across Yorkshire twenty years ago.
She started teaching in the days of libraries full of film and fiche, migrated into computers then the internet and now fully committed to online delivery.
A regular speaker at major events such as WDYTYA-Live and RootsTech London, Jackie has also run dedicated workshops for Archives, Country Houses, Libraries, Museums and Universities.
It began with a family house, researching its occupants, an interest in Local History and joining a Family History Society. Still promoting local groups she chairs the Yorkshire Group of Family History Societies, is a member of the Guild of One Name Studies, Bradford, Calderdale and Wakefield FHS, Friends of the National Archives and the British Association for Local Studies.
