The fellow on the right is our Digital Inclusion advisor Steve Thompson, he's been around a while! Many families have photos like this in their collection. Why not bring them in and have them scanned?
In pleasant company our participants are exploring their past. Some amazing discoveries have been made.
Middlesbrough libraries have licenses for Ancestry.com and we'll show you how to use it to search for your ancestors. You could find documents and images going back years! Realistically it could take some digging to find your ancestors but we'll show you how and you'll have fun and be in good company along the way. We can also show you some free digital tools that could help as well and we'll help you get started if you want to use those - click here for more information on digital tools for family history research
We should add: It's not all digital. Before coming to the Ancestry Club talk to your relatives and gather what information you can such as birth dates and places of birth. Also gather together whatever documents and photographs you can find.
