On Saturday 3 June 2017 , 10am – 4pm at Nottinghamshire Archives. Researching your family history can be confusing, and it’s often hard to know what resources are available. During this one-day workshop, we look at a variety of techniques to help you understand how to use parish registers, the census, wills, plus original sources from Nottinghamshire Archives. You will also be introduced to Ancestry – an online database containing millions of names and digitised records. Presented by Ruth imeson, County Archivist, and Peter Hammond, President of Nottingham Family History Society, this workshop is for anyone looking to begin their research, or those who have made a start but may have hit a brick wall. All you need is enthusiasm and some knowledge of your family’s births, deaths and marriages. if you have documents to bring, that’s a bonus but not essential. The workshop will be held at Nottinghamshire Archives where you can access Ancestry and look up original sources.
