Family History Day in Hawes - The Gathering 2018
« on: February 07, 2018, 10:56:58 AM »
The Upper Dales Family History Group will hold a day of talks and presentations by members and guest speakers at the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes on Saturday, March 24.
Find out how a descendant of refugees became Rector of Wensley and how a poor Coverdale curate lived in Georgian times, discover unexpected links between Teesdale and London, and hear a tale of highway robbery, bigamy, hidden identity, murder, mystery and mayhem in the Constantine family!  After lunch Thomas Chandler of Richmondshire Youth Theatre will be speaking on the research behind his recent play Miners of Lead, Rob and Harriet Fraser will talk about the making of the Voices from the Land exhibition of photographs and recordings of contemporary farming life in the dales, and Dave Carlisle will give an introduction to the display of lead mining material in the Museum.

The day is open to everyone and the cost of £15 includes a buffet lunch provided by the Firebox Café, tea and coffee during the day, free parking on site and free entry to the display areas of the Museum.

Over lunch there will be time to look around the Museum, find out what resources are available in the Research Room or compare notes about your own family history interests.

The day starts with coffee from 9.30 am and ends around 5pm, with an optional evening meal together.  Advance booking only; closes March 1.

To find out more or to book, contact or phone 01748 884759.
