It doesn’t matter if you are new to family history research or have been researching for years, there is sure to be something here for you to learn from and enjoy. The first in our series will be held on Tuesday 25 February 11am – 12 noon. The subject is ‘Painting a picture of your ancestors using diaries, letters and images’. While you might have your ancestor’s name, dates and the towns they lived, what about filling the void of the life they lived? By using your family’s and other people’s diaries, letters, books, newspapers, images, paintings, etc. we can build a picture of what life was like for your ancestor during a particular period of time. Our presentator will be Jo Murphy.
