As part of the World of Words Festival 2014 in Inverurie we are holding a drop-in session upstairs in Inverurie Library on Friday 5th September from 2 pm – 4 pm.
This is an opportunity to discuss Local and Family History issues, to ask for help and advice and to share your knowledge and experience.
Subject areas which will be highlighted are family history websites (ScotlandsPeople, Ancestry etc) and microfilm, historical maps and newspapers.
Since 2014 is the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War, We are particularly interested this year if you have artifacts or family information about World War One, both the battle front and the home front. We would love to see photographs, medals, letters, diaries etc. This year there is a lot of research going on around the Inverurie War Memorial and we would try to answer any questions about the men listed on it, but we would also like to add YOUR knowledge and information to what is already known.
So please come along to Inverurie Library on 5th September. We look forward to chatting about all things Local and Family History.
