Cambridgeshire Family History Society Fair

From Cambridgeshire FHS:

If you’ve ever thought about researching your ancestry, expert advice will be on hand at the Cambridgeshire Family History Society Fair on 25 October. Speakers will teach you how to find your Cambridgeshire ancestors and then show you how you can turn your research into an interesting story for your family and friends. You will also hear about the Imperial War Museum Duxford’s collection of Second World War images as well as learning how to date old photographs from looking at clues given in pictures.

Exhibitors from family and local history societies will be attending, as well as organisations offering everything that you need to help you with your research. Whether your ancestors are from Cambridgeshire, or beyond, our experienced volunteers will be available for one-to-one sessions to give advice about getting started and what to do if you get stuck. There will also be free access to the main genealogy websites throughout the day. Share ideas and practical tips with your fellow family historians and, for a small charge, we’ll even provide soup and a roll for lunch while you chat!

The fair is taking place at Girton Glebe School, Girton. Doors open 10am-4pm. Parking and entry is free (£2 to attend each talk). The Citi 6 bus stops outside the school.
