Researching your Family History

Our four previous family history events 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 with almost a hundred people attending.

Our next Family History event is on Tuesday 7th April and the format will remain the same.
