📜 Family History Sessions 📜
Throughout January, February and April, there will be Family History drop-in sessions, and workshops taking place. The sessions will be taken by our own Local Studies Library Assistant, Anna Rankin.
In these workshops, Anna will be showing you how to use Ancestry. Ideal for those with little or no experience and want to learn more. People are welcome to follow along using the PCs, but there is no pressure if you want to learn by watching. We will show you how to create a search for births, marriages and deaths, before moving on to the census, parish registers and problems you may encounter. We all hit brick walls along the way, so we will discuss other methods of performing your searches. It will give you an insight as to what resources are available at your local library and at Y Llynfi, our local and family history library.
The drop-in sessions are ideal for those who have hit a brick wall and want some help, advice, or a fresh pair of eyes! We can try wildcards on Ancestry and other possible sources of information available from the library.
Please note that booking in advance isn’t required.
