The session will include an introduction to both hard copy resources, such as trade directories and electoral registers, and online resources, like Ancestry UK (searchable census and other family history records) and the British Newspaper Archive (searchable local and national newspapers). It is aimed at anyone who would like to help Heaton History Group with its research or look up information of personal interest, but who is not quite sure how to get started. It’ll be very informal and a great opportunity to get to know some members of the group a little better, so should be a really enjoyable afternoon.
Thursday 4 July 2.00pm – 4.00pm Local Studies, Newcastle City Library
The session is free but it’s essential to book ahead as there are only a few places left. Please contact Caroline – firstname.lastname@example.org
