Learn to create a family tree during workshop at The Folly, Settle
8:00am Sunday 11th August 2013 in News
Archivists Keith Sweetmore and Ellen Southwell from the North Yorkshire County Records Office will lead a family history workshop at The Folly, Settle, on Wednesday.
They will give an update on the use of prime online sources such as census returns, registration records, parish registers, deeds and wills.
Local examples will be used to demonstrate the ways in which records can be used to create family trees and discover more detail about how our ancestors lived.
The event – which runs from 2pm to 4.30pm – will also give people the chance to see the Yorkshire Archaeological Society’s exhibition.
Tickets cost £6 and are available from The Folly or from (01729} 822893.
