Free family history event at Midsomer Norton Library
People can get help to trace their family history with a free event at Midsomer Norton Library on Tuesday 19 March (7-8pm), as part of Bath & North East Somerset Council's "After Hours" campaign to promote the wider use of libraries.
"Family History – how do you get started?" will be hosted by the Council's Local Studies Librarian Anne Buchanan. The event is aimed at anyone who is just starting their search or anyone who is interested in having a go but doesn't know where to begin.

Anne, who is an expert in tracing family history, will give a presentation outlining the first steps in tracing your family tree and attendees will also have the opportunity to ask her questions about the best way to find information. In addition, once people have got started on their own family trees Anne can offer one-to-one advice and guidance at a later date if anyone reaches a barrier in their research.
Councillor David Dixon (Lib-Dem, Oldfield), Cabinet Member for Neighbourhoods, said: "The 'After Hours' events give people the chance to get even more benefit from Bath & North East Somerset Council's libraries outside of their normal opening times. Our library staff are keen to hear from anyone who may have an idea for a future event. We also welcome any volunteers who can help them make cups of tea and clear away at the end of the evenings."
The "Family History" event is free but spaces are limited so tickets must be booked by calling Council Connect on 01225 394041or popping into Midsomer Norton Library on the High Street, next to the Holly Court Arcade.
