Event - Rotherham folk can trace family history

Staff at Rotherham’s Archives and Local Studies Service are inviting local folk to trace their family history.

A special 'Archives Workshop' for beginners will be held on Friday, November 9, from 10am to 12 noon. Visitors will be able to discover and learn to use resources to help trace their family history, which includes census information, electoral registers, school records, parish registers and workhouse records.

Cabinet Member for Culture and Tourism, Councillor Amy Rushforth, said: "Rotherham's Archives and Local Studies Services is a fantastic resource and the staff are first class when it comes to helping members of the public dig into the past."

The cost for the session is £3 per person. Advance Booking is essential - call 01709 336633 to reserve your place or visit Rotherham Archives and Local Studies, now located in Clifton Park Museum.
