Tracing your family history – a series of workshops for beginners

These workshops are aimed at people who are new to family history and will cover all the essentials to get you started tracing your ancestors. Each workshop looks at different sources of information and includes practical sessions as well as opportunities to engage with the vast collections of original records held in Guildhall Library.

The tutors, Val Hart and Peter Ross, are experts in tracing family trees with particular expertise in London ancestors, although the workshops will be suitable for all those with ancestors from across the British Isles.

Price: £10 per workshop (concessionary fee not available) and take place in Guildhall Library.
