    Upcoming WWI in the Archives workshop at The Hive

    • 27th October 2014

    On Monday 10th November we are running a workshop about World War I in the Archives here at The Hive. Although there have always been people using us to research WWI soldiers and local places during the war, there has been a large increase recently due to the centenary, prompting many individuals and groups to investigate ancestors of their local communities.

    During this workshop we’ll look at how you can use the resources here to research more about soldiers’ lives, find out whether your ancestor or as part of a study on a war memorial. We will also go through how to search our archives for information about the war, the period and links to local communities.

    The workshop runs from 10am to 12:30pm and will be at The Hive. Places cost £8 and will need to be booked in advance. You can book now by emailing explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk or by phoning 01905 766352. 

    Please note this is a repeat of the workshop we ran in June this year.
