This workshop is an introduction to family history research, designed for those who are just starting out. A representative from Libraries NI Heritage Services will be available in Rathfriland library to advise you on how to begin your research and to help you discover how to use the internet when tracing your family tree. The event is open to everyone but places are limited, so booking is essential to secure a place.

This is an ideal opportunity for anyone who is curious about where they come from and wants to find out about their family roots.
