The Local History area has a dedicated group of five volunteers who freely give up three days a week to assist patrons with family history help.
Family history volunteers have put in over 2,366 hours in the past year.
That’s equivalent to over 1 year and 10 weeks of work, based on a 38 hour week. They have helped over 650 people from July 2009 to April 2010.
We have completed our longest family history query, the Bowman family, resulting in 294 names and a printed family tree of 35, A4 pages, stretching over 11.2 metres!
Come and see us for help with your family history.
