Fife Family History and Local History Fair 2016

From Fife Family History Society (


In a new departure for the society, Fife Family History Society will be sole organisers of the 2016 Fife Family History and Local History Fair. As in previous years the event will focus on Family History. However this year its scope will be widened to include coverage of Local History in general – Fife can boast many local history groups across the towns and villages of the county who are all active in exploring and promoting the history of their own localities.

The Fair will include a series of talks from key speakers on a range of subjects, and a Fair with stalls run by a number of family history societies and local history groups, both from Fife and from wider afield. In addition, the event will include some new features such as ‘Ask the Expert’ with specialists on hand to assist visitors to overcome brick walls in their researches.

The event will be taking place on Saturday 8 October, in the Carnegie Conference Centre in Dunfermline.

Further details of speakers, stallholders, experts, ticketing, etc. will be available soon. In the meantime, please keep an eye on our website – - where information will be posted as it becomes available.
