Tracing your military ancestors online – workshop
October 25 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm£10.00
“Tracing your military ancestors online” is a new workshop for Autumn 2022. Our guest presenter will, through presentation and document examples, help you explore how you can use the popular websites (Find My Past and Ancestry) to search for your military ancestors. During the workshop you will explore records for Pre World War 1, World War I (including Women in World War I), World War II and other conflicts and also medal records.
The ‘formal’ part of the workshop will run from 10.00 to 12.30. After a quick lunch break you will have the opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice by doing some of your own research using our facilities at Treetops. During the afternoon session we will be joined by one of our volunteers with lots of experience of tracing her own military ancestors, who will be there to help you with your military research. So make sure you bring your own research notes along!
Places are limited and must be booked in advance
