North Yorkshire County Council hosts family history event
8:00am Wednesday 13th March 2013 in News
People who want to delve into their family histories – and into the stories behind the houses in which they live – are being offered expert tips on how to go about it.
North Yorkshire County Council is staging an event for amateur historians and family tree researchers at the Harrogate Pavilions on Saturday.
The day, organised by the County Record Office, features experts in the fields of family and house history research and 30 stalls and trade stands run by a range of archaeology and history organisations.
“Finding out about your family’s roots can be one of the most interesting and rewarding of all activities,” said County Coun Chris Metcalfe, executive member for library and information services.
Tickets are £2, payable at the door.
