In a relaxed group setting, Lorna will introduce you to the basic principles of family history giving you guidance on what information you need, where to find it and how to interpret it. Participants are encouraged to bring with them any research they have already carried out.

There will be the opportunity to discuss your research with Lorna during lunch.
No previous experience is needed and lunch is included.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Family History for Beginners are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
