About The Speaker...
Helen Baggott is a freelance editor and writer from Dorset.
Her most recent project is researching the stories behind postcards sent more than 100 years ago. So far, two collections of stories have been published as Posted in the Past and Posted in the Past Second Delivery.
She has written for magazines including Who Do You Think You Are?, Picture Postcard Monthly, Dorset Life and The Card Scene, and has also contributed to Family Tree magazine’s blog. Her work has been recognised by national newspapers as a ‘postcard detective’ in I newspaper and an ‘heirloom detective’ in The Mail on Sunday’s You magazine.
Through the power of Zoom she speaks to groups on both sides of the Atlantic and has been a speaker at the Family History Federation ‘s Really Useful Show and THE Genealogy Show.
“I thoroughly enjoyed your talk last evening, both content and delivery. It opened aspects of postcards that I had not thought about and has given me some useful ideas for developing my own family history research. I hope I have the pleasure of hearing you again.”
