An event for Prestonians interested in tracing their family history takes place this weekend.


The Family History Day at the Museum of Lancashire gives people a chance to explore their local roots.

Stephen Miller, community outreach officer for the Museum, said: “This is a great chance to learn about your family history. We know a lot of people hit a brick wall with their research and we wanted to help.

“We’ll have experts on hand from a number of organisation who can help trace that missing great-grandfather or even further back.”

The event takes place on Saturday 7th April from 10.30am to 4pm at the Museum on Stanley Street. It’s free to attend.
