Trace your ancestry

ARE you interested in your family history, but do not know how to go about starting the process of delving into the record books?

Sudbury Library plays host to a family history society event once a month which is aimed at beginners.

David Dalfry, from the Sudbury group of the Suffolk Family History Society, said: “This is a regular event held in Sudbury on the last Wednesday of the month.

“We ask people who are interested in looking for their ancestors to make an appointment with the library and we will help them access records on the computer.

“It can be quite daunting when you don’t know where to start looking, but hopefully we can guide them in the right direction and show them where to go on line for information.

“We usually see them two or three times to get them started and then they do the rest themselves.”

If you are interested in making an appointment, contact the library on 01787 296000.
