Hawick Reivers Festival, 26th to 28th March 2010

We will be providing a Family History Surgery at the Hawick Heritage Hub on Saturday 27th March from 10am to 1pm and from 2pm to 4.45pm.

Come and ask us or the Hub's expert staff on how to get started or advance your family and local history research.

Staff from the Scottish Borders Archive and Local History Service as well as us will be on hand to advise, discuss resources that can be used and challenge you to find your family’s story.

As usual, we'll have a selection of publications for sale, including the recently published and very popular 52 page book Days of Our Youth - Memories of Melrose that describes life in Melrose, the shops, excursions, church antics, local characters, celebrations, holidays, and school in the late 19th and early 20th century.

There's lots of other events - see the full programme, including a medieval market during the day, and a torch-lit procession and fireworks on Saturday evening.
