Meeting on the second and fourth Monday evening of each month, Retford Library’s Family History Group has something for everyone, beginners or experienced researchers alike. The Group provides tuition and support on a range of online resources that are free – ideal for beginners working at home. We also have access to the library’s ‘on-the-shelves’ resources as well as microfilm and microfiche catalogues for which tuition is available, making visits to larger archives so much more productive.
However, all Nottinghamshire libraries provide free access to Ancestry.com’s Worldwide subscription worth around £150 if taken out privately so this is a big ‘pull’ for the Group. To access this facility during normal library hours just make sure you have your library card handy and book a ‘slot’ by phone or in person at any library.
With close working relationships with Library service specialists and also Nottingham Archive, why not join us for one of our meetings – they are free and run from 17:00-19:00.
Our next meetings are scheduled for 27th April, 2015.
