Have you ever thought about researching your family tree, but don't know where to start? Or, do you feel like you're going round in circles, or have 'hit a wall' with your research?

After the success of the Linlithgow Library's Family History Workshop, on the 4th February, the West Lothian Family History Society volunteers are once again running workshops in our local libraries.

These workshops are free* and open to anyone.

You will be shown the best websites to use and how to use these websites effectively, hopefully enabling you to go on and confidently use these resources independently.

They are also available to assist confident researchers who find themselves 'stuck' with their research.
