Find out about your family history at The Hive

The Hive Published Wednesday, 17th October 2018

Two workshops are taking place at The Hive aimed at helping people find out more about their ancestors.

The Exploring Family History Websites sessions are taking place on Tuesday, October 30 from 7-9pm and on Tuesday, November 6 from 7-9pm.

Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service offers free access to two key family website at The Hive – Ancestry.co.uk and Find My Past.

They have a huge amount of information for family historians. However, it can be hard to know where to start and what the website contain.

Paul Hudson, Learning & Outreach Manager for Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, said: "Our workshops have always been popular because they help people get the most out of these great family history websites which are free to access in The Hive. 

"Getting your head around these websites isn't always easy, understanding what they contain and how they are arranged, so these workshops aim to help you."
The workshops will help explain the different sources which the websites contain and which are the most useful. The second half will include using the computer to have a go at searching the websites.

Places at £6 each are limited and need to be booked either by going to http://www.thehiveworcester.org/explore-the-past-events, by calling 01905 766352 or emailing explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk
