Dr Janet Few is an experienced family, community and social historian who writes and lectures regularly on these topics throughout the UK and beyond. She is passionate about passing on her love of family and local history to young people. Having worked as a history teacher in a setting where all technology was banned, she had to devise inventive ways of making lessons lively, interactive and appealing. As an historical interpreter, Janet works to promote a love of history in teenagers, sharing with them aspects of life in the seventeenth century. In 2014, Janet was voted the top family historian in Britain in an Anglo-Celtic Connections poll to find the “Genealogical Rockstars” of the English speaking world.
