Begin a journey into your family's history at the Hive

Published Friday, 22nd January 2016

Worcestershire Archive & Archaeology Service is giving people the opportunity to start learning about their family history.

The two part workshops will take place at the Hive on Wed 3 and Wed 10 February.

Family History is very popular and January is always a busy time for people wanting to begin their research. Perhaps inspired by a New Year's resolution or a family story told at Christmas. Whatever the motivation, researching family history provides a new hobby for the New Year.

These workshops will help people get started by explaining the basic principles, going through the main sources, and showing attendees where to go for information.

Some searching will be on computer so participants should be familiar with using computers.

Paul Hudson, WAAS Outreach Manager, said: "Family history is fascinating, but often people don't know where to start. These workshops will help explain what to do and how to get started here in The Hive, and where we have the expertise and resources to help".

People can book via www.thehiveworcester.org.uk/events.  Places are £15 and need to be booked in advance.
