History Centre Memories Exhibition

    • 10th March 2012

    Here at the History Centre we are preparing for our move to The Hive at the end of April. We will be closing to the public for the final time on Saturday 21st of April and to mark this occasion, we are putting together an exhibition of memories of the History Centre. We are asking people to tell us what it has meant to them over the years:

    ·         Have you discovered something special about your family tree?

    ·         Have you learnt something new?

    ·         Have you achieved something you are proud of?

    You can fill in a form in the searchroom, or send us an email to

    We are collecting memories throughout March, and will be displaying them in our searchroom as well as online, during April.

    We would love to hear from you if you have any memories you would like to share, so get in touch soon!

      In the early stages of my genealogical research at the History Centre it was wonderful to find the fiche of the National Index of the 1881 Census – so useful for family history, house history, local history ……..

      To all staff, past and present, thanks for your cheerful assistance. I look forward to continuing my research at The Hive.

    2. Thank you Roger, it's great to hear about your experiences at the History Centre. It will be missed, but we look forward to hopefully providing the same cheerful assistance at The Hive!
