The course is for those researching their family history or the history of their house. It is suitable for beginners and those with some experience. This is a great opportunity to find out about your ancestors and local history. Recent television exposure has increased interest in, and awareness of house history research. Our course will use a variety of sources to study a particular property, follow the lives of the people who lived there and see elements of local history that can be discovered through the records. 5 week course meets every fortnight from 4th October: Cost £35.
