Event - Chance to search through archives (Nottingham)

NOTTS Archives is to hold a series of new workshops and tours to help people find out more about the past.

Workshops will look at what records people can access, such as maps, plans and family, estate and hospital records.

Visitors can also get help deciphering difficult handwriting and old deeds.

On Wednesday, May 18, a session on maps and plans will be held.

Family and estate records will be looked at on Wednesday, June 15, and on Wednesday, July 20, non-conformist records – documents which relate to those who did not follow the Anglican religion – will be explored.

Councillor John Cottee said: "These are great opportunities to find out more about our rich archival heritage and how they can access it.

"There are so many important records held at Nottinghamshire Archives."

All sessions cost £3.50 and must be pre-booked by calling 0115 958 1634.
