The Family History Workshop can help you in your quest to find out about your family history – how to start, where to look and try to help you find answers
They meet on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month, 2.00 – 4.00 pm, £2.50 each week including refreshments
An information pack is provided which includes a list of useful websites / Local archives and Templates to help you get organised, this will be e-mailed to you after your first meeting
Get to meet others with a similar interest. The members of the group have a range of experience and have been attending for varying lengths of time.
You have the use of three computers with free access to Family History Websites such as Ancestry co.uk and Find My Past
The group is lead by Janet Davis, who lives in Kibworth Beauchamp and has been researching her Family History for over ten years, whilst she does not have any genealogy qualifications, she has a lot of experience and is keen to help others avoid the common mistakes! She will be on hand to provide assistance and advice.
So what now…
The first session includes:-
An introduction to the group and Family History
A talk about the information pack which will be e-mailed to you
A discussion about your personal quest and how to get organised.
A check that you have Library Membership (you need to be a member to access the Library computers)
We are aware that personal requirements differ immensely, some will only want the introduction or guidance, whilst others value working in a group and the dedicated time to pursue their interest.
We need to know who / how many are coming each week this is due to space and the number of computers –i.e. if 6 people attend and they all wish to access the computers – there will be a restriction of 1 hour per person
If you are interested in joining the group– please email Janet at firstname.lastname@example.org
She will let you know the date of the next meeting – You will need to inform her if you can attend
