Huddersfield family history society to open pop-up shop

This is an interesting idea - Huddersfield and District Family History Society ( will be opening a family history themed pop-up shop in the Pack Horse Centre in Huddersfield from March 10th-12th, from 10am to 4pm each day.

According to the society's secretary Susan Hutson, “Many of the Society’s volunteers will wear the dress of our ancestors and will welcome people to find out more about what the Society does in terms of collecting family and local history records and helping everyone to undertake their own research. There will be displays of local historical material and the chance to search Ancestry and FindmyPast to find some of their own ancestors. The Society also has its own database of records.”

The full story is available at the Huddersfield Daily Examiner website at
