My Ouseburn ancestors and how I found them
Online talk | Tuesday 16 March 7-8pm | Led by Sue Bright
Guest speaker for this fascinating event explains "I have been researching my family history for over 30 years, before computers. These days it's quite easy to research online without leaving your home, and new information is made available online all the time. I will look at each of my Ouseburn ancestors and the records available on them."
Join Sue on her ancestral journey and perhaps you'll be inspired to embark on your own.
