An event with WY Archives

May 12 @ 10:00 am - May 13 @ 4:00 pm

We are joining with West Yorkshire Archives in Huddersfield and Huddersfield Local History Society for an exciting opportunity to learn about local history, house history and family history research. Why not come along to find out how there is so much more to your research than sitting at a computer and researching genealogical subscription websites.

Open Days

Unit 1, The Piazza (opposite Huddersfield Library)

Thursday 12th and Friday 13th May 2022
10.00 am to 12 noon and 1.00 pm to 4.00 pm

WYAS currently have a new exhibition of fascinating and original archives to guide you through House History research, and they will be joined by Huddersfield & District Family History Society and Huddersfield Local History Society on the above two days.

Our society will be offering family history research and advice through Ancestry and FindmyPast, as well as selling various house and family history related books, some of which will support the exhibition.

The local history society has recently received three large donations of second-hand local history books and booklets, which they will have on sale during the open days in support of their society, together with their new book, Colne Valley: A History of a Pennine Landscape,  and other titles.
