Family History Day 2016
Dorset Family History Society is once again hosting a ‘Family History Day’
Admission is FREE. Car parking in the school grounds is FREE. This really is a great day out for all the family.
As in 2014, we will continue to commemorate the centennial of WW1 by remembering the events and our ancestors of the time.
Guest speakers will be:-
Historian David Fletcher MBE, who worked at the Tank Museum in Bovington for many years and will focus his talk on the role of the Tank in WW1.
Sarah Paterson will also give a talk about women’s contribution to the war effort, especially at home, something which affected every family in the land.
To attend a talk is only £1 on the day, but numbers are limited.
Attending will be Family History Societies from other counties, organisations involved with Family History (Genealogy) and commercial firms selling aids to research and storage materials. Our Help Desk will assist you in your research (all free and friendly), books and DVDs will be on sale, and volunteers will be available to help with access to Dorset Family History Society’s extensive resources for both Dorset and elsewhere.
Whether you have researched your family history or have just started out on the trail of your ancestors this is an ideal event to visit. There is easy access within the venue and refreshments will be on sale throughout the day.
Please print and display our poster as widely as possible - Thank you
