Branching Out family history courses

New dates for 2018

Family History for those happy with the basics.

Led by an archivist, these sessions comprise a talk approximately an hour long, followed by roughly an hour of browsing time, during which you can use the microfilm and computers, browse the library and explore the Record Office in a structured and supportive environment.
