Drop in session – general

Stuck with your family tree or don’t know how to get started? Come to this free advice session with expert Sandra Barkwith. Bring the research you have completed to date, copies rather than original documents are safest, and Sandra will suggest potential new approaches or avenues to explore. 

The Centre is open from 10.30am to 4.30pm on this date so, if you have time, you may stay longer to fit in more research. 

Open to society members and non-members.

FREE just turn up.
