Family history drop-in

Sat, 22 June 2024 10am to 3pm

Get your family history research started with some help from our resident expert, Steve Erskine.

At this special drop-in day, simply visit the the museum to find out how to learn more about your service relative. If you’ve always wondered about exactly how to go about understanding service records, using family history research resources and deciphering official paperwork, we’re here to guide you through.

Perhaps you’ve already started the process and have come to a dead-end, or maybe you’ve finally decided to go through those documents from the loft, we are here to help.

We will:

  • set you off on the right track, armed with hints and tips of how to start and what to do when
  • explain the various tools to help you research your service ancestor
  • offer the chance to start the process with our research service – if your relative served with The Green Howards

There is no additional charge for this drop-in service, although you will need to pay museum admission on the day of the event.

Get ahead! Take a look at our research page here.
