    Our popular Ancestry workshops are returning to The Hive!

    • 13th February 2015

    Our popular Ancestry.co.uk workshops are running again and will be starting in late February. If you want to know more about the website and the sources it contains, and want to really get the most out of your research on the site, our workshops are a great place to start. Some people who come along have never used Ancestry and want some guidance before beginning, not knowing where to start, whilst others are familiar with the site but are a bit confused by what they are finding, or want to make sure they’re getting everything they can from it. Each workshop begins in a meeting room here at The Hive looking at the background to the different sources and the principles of searching, before moving on to computers so you can have a go at searching the different sources and trying out what you have learnt.
