Putting Flesh on the Bones - A Family History Activity Day
Sunday 9 October 2011
11.00am - 4.00pm

Have you found the names and dates for your family tree? Now do you want to put some ‘flesh on the bones'?

Join us in the Hawley Gallery for a day investigating who your ancestors really were and, if they were Sheffielders, finding out more about their trades.

• Members of the Sheffield and District Family History Society will be on hand to help you discover your ancestors online and advise you on how to find out more

• CDs, maps and booklets to use in researching your local roots and recording and displaying your findings

• Talks for beginners young and old on how to start your family history research

• Hands-on activities about Sheffield trades and occupations from the past - try your hand at buffing, grinding, file cutting, measure making

• Discover whether you would make a good Little Mester

• Trade Trails around the Museum

• Costumed characters
