Introduction to Family History sessions

Are you interested in family history but not sure where to start? Our one-off sessions look at the basic resources that can be used in genealogical research.

Connect with your family history

Family history is increasingly popular and with so many resources now available online, there has never been a better time to start discovering your ancestors. Family history provides a personal and unique connection with the past. It can be highly addictive and great fun - but can also be confusing, frustrating and surprising.

A beginner's guide

We will spend some time exploring the online resources that help with family history, with some time for practice and assisted searching. 

Please bring any information you already know about your family. This can be gathered by talking to relatives and recording details of names, dates and places associated with family members.
