We’ve been around the County, and now Norfolk Record Office is going to be helping you research your military ancestry in Norwich, too.
This Summer/Autumn sees the return of last year’s popular Genealogy Saturday Sessions, updated for 2014.
Each session takes you through particular types of resource before letting you get some hands-on experience in our searchroom at Norfolk Heritage Centre, inside the Millennium Library. Workshops are led by our experienced archive specialists.
Dates are as follows – 16 August (archived newspapers), 30 August (documents for military ancestry), 20 September (parish registers) and 04 October (wills and other probate). All start at 10am and run officially until 11.30am, although you are welcome to stay on longer if you wish.
Each session costs £5, which will be collected at the beginning of each session. Booking is essential. Please call 01603 774740 or book online at http://www.archives.norfolk.gov.uk/events.
…and if that isn’t enough,
head to our events page ( http://www.archives.norfolk.gov.uk/events ) to find dates for beginners’ family history courses, Heritage Hours (including one about the resources of the Royal Norfolk Regimental Museum), a chance to get behind-the-scenes at NRO:The Archive Centre, and our brand new exhibition and tie-in lecture series, ‘Norfolk in the First World War’.
More events will come soon, including a further military workshop in October and a ‘Meet the Curator’ session with Frank Meeres. If you’d like to be the first to know when these are confirmed, follow us on twitter @NorfolkRO, or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for your email to be added to our Events Mailing List.
