Lanarkshire Local and Family History Show 2016

Lanarkshire Family History Society will be hosting its annual Local and Family History Show in
Motherwell Concert Hall, Windmillhill Street, Motherwell, ML1 1AB, on ​Saturday 3rd September 2016.

There will be the usual range of exhibitors, and a programme of speakers giving the following talks:

* Marie Dougan - Researching your Family Tree using Social Media.
* Robert Reid – A stroll through the History of Strathclyde Country Park
* Andrew Nicoll - Researching your Catholic Ancestors.

As well as members of Lanarkshire FHS, professional genealogists from the Scottish Genealogy Network (www.scottishgenealogynetwork.co.uk) will be at the Show to offer free one-to-one advice for anyone starting out researching their family history, or who’s hit a “brick wall”.

I unfortunately won't be able to attend this year's event, as I'll be speaking at the FGS in the US on the same day, but it is by far the highlight of the Scottish genealogy calendar, and well worth a visit!
