Family history courses

Solihull Libraries usually run a series of courses to help kick-start your family history research.

The next one will be at Hobs Moat Library from Friday 9 September to Friday 21 October, from 10.15am to 12.15pm. 

This 7-week beginners’ family history course will explain the process of researching family history from scratch, including how to organise your files and information, and how to find and use essential records such as birth, marriage and death certificates and census returns. You will learn how to use the Ancestry and Find My Past websites effectively.

Places are limited, book online at the Core Theatre website. The course cost is £88.
