Have you ever wondered about your family story? Your family history is like a dark room full of your past relations hidden in the shadows. Lean how to bring these people into the light.

Local historian, David Brooks, will explain how to trace your own family’s history, using photos and information that he has collected over many years about his own.

By using certificates, parish records, the census, military records, and family stories you can piece together the jigsaw puzzle that makes up your family’s story and make your own discoveries about their work and how they lived.

David has traced part of his family back to Tudor times - how far back will your search take you?

Advance booking is essential.
