Trace your family tree on new courses

Tips and advice on tracing your family tree will be available at a beginners’ family history course.

Run by Durham County Record Office, the popular sessions are led by an archivist and also offer an introduction to the sources available at the record office.

The course lasts for three weeks and runs on the following dates:

  • Thursday evenings, from 6pm to 8pm – 15, 22 and 29 June
  • Friday mornings, from 10am to 12 noon – 16, 23 and 30 June
  • Tuesday evenings, from 6pm to 8pm – 12, 19 and 26 September
  • Thursday mornings, from 10am to 12noon – 14, 21 and 28 September

Dawn Layland, education and outreach archivist, said: “Our family history courses offer the chance to get started on your family tree and find out about the fantastic resources available on your doorstep.”

The course costs £30 for all three sessions. Places must be booked in advance by calling 03000 267 626.
