More Seats Available at our Family and Local History Fair and Conference in Melrose, Scotland on 9th October 2010

We underestimated the demand for the talks at our forthcoming family and local history fair and conference, so we've moved the talks into a bigger room and allocated more seats to the seat booking site.

We will hold some seats back so that those who don't have internet access can still go to the talks, and I expect there will be some people who don't turn up on the day.

However, admission to the fair and conference is free, the seats are free, there is no booking fee, and there'll be people from the Hawick Heritage Hub as well as others in our research room waiting to help you with your research.

You don't need to bring lunch or drinks with you as we're providing light refreshments at very low prices.
