We are a voluntary group set up to support Redland Library, helping to sustain and improve its service, and also connecting it with the local and wider community.

Redland Library is situated on Whiteladies Road in Bristol, close to Clifton Down Station.

Researching your Family History

Our four family history events on 23rd October, 20th November, 24th January and 16th April have been a success. These events comprised a talk by Stephen Williams, followed by hands on computer time using Bristol Library’s copy of the Ancestry software. Support was provided by members of the Bristol and Avon Family History Society.

All four events were sold out and we therefore plan to hold similar events going forward. Keep checking our future events listings for news of our next Family History event.
