Travel back in time and discover your family history

Published Friday, 10th April 2015

When taking a trip to your grandparents, have you ever wished that you could travel back in time and see how the world looked when they were children?

Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service is offering the chance for children and grandparents or parents to discover their ancestors during a family history course at The Hive in Worcester over four consecutive Tuesdays from April 21 to May 12, between 4pm and 5pm.

The course is great after-school activity which gives children the chance to ask parents, grandparents or carers about their family memories and then use on-line and microfilm resources such as the census and parish registers to start tracing their family history together.

Su Vale, Outreach Assistant, Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service, said: "Family history is always very popular, but people often say that they should have started their research earlier so they could have asked their grandparents questions. These one-hour sessions will enable to children to talk about their family history and will show them how to research their ancestors further back."

Places are £32 and can be booked through http://www.thehiveworcester.org/events. If you would like more details please ring 01905 766352.
