Have you ever wondered if your great-great-grandfather was a bread thief or if your great-grandmother had more children than you thought?

Mike Murray and Dr Lesley Silvester from TimeTrackers will give you great insider tips on tracking down your UK and Irish ancestors all from the comfort of your computer.

This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of UK and Ireland family history research, using the internet in demo/ presentation mode.
