Family History Workshop at the Hawick Heritage Hub

Interested in tracing your family history . . . but don't know where to start ?  Then come along to a Family History Workshop at the Heritage Hub, Hawick on Tuesday October 12th, 7pm-9pm.  

They will show you how the resources at the Heritage Hub can help you in your search.  As well as the usual census returns, old parish records, and monumental inscriptions, you will have the opportunity to view a range of records including, business records, council records, family papers, militia lists and poor law records.

The setting is friendly and informal and you will go away with hints, tips and handouts.

Rachel Hosker, Archive Manager says "Family history is much more than being a collector of names and dates.  We hold fascinating and unique evidence covering the whole of the Scottish Borders to help people gain a picture on how their ancestors lived and worked and build up the story of their own family."  

Places are limited - so do please book early to avoid disappointment – the charge of £5 will include handouts and a family history chart.   
Phone 01450 360688 or 01450 360699 to book a place.

If you need help before October 12th, come along to our free talk, Local Families of Ancient Origin in Foulden, Berwickshire  on Sunday, 26th September or get free advice from us, the Hawick Heritage Hub and others at our Family and Local History Fair and Conference in Melrose on 9th October.
