  • Family History Society Workshop

Ever wondered about your family roots?

The West Lothian Family History Society volunteers will be running monthly workshops throughout West Lothian libraries to celebrate the year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.    They assist people beginning their research into their family history or will help anyone 'stuck' with their research.  In August the workshop will take place in East Calder Library.

The Family History Society asks anyone coming along, to bring as much information as they can to help start their search. This is a free service provided by the society; however, if accessing the Scotlandspeople website, charges will apply if certificates are viewed and printed.

The workshop will take place on Saturday 5 August from 10.00am - 12.30pm.
