All the different societies and organisations that attend these events, are always very keen and willing to help with advice and guidance on what to look for and where to look, offering helpful hints and tips, based on their own personal experiences.
The Huddersfield and District Family History Society will have our own researchers, society members and committee members on hand, to help and advise. We will have our computers, with our own database installed, on hand for anyone who would like to have a search done on the day. The Society will also have the full range of transcribed Parish Register & Census booklets and CD's available to buy.
This year we have three talks with a family or local history flavour to entertain visitors and we are pleased to confirm the attendance of the following:
