    WWI in the Archives Workshop

    • 22nd October 2015

    On Friday 6th November we are running our WWI in the Archives workshop. There is a lot of interest in this period, and this workshop

    The first part of the workshop will look at how you can trace a soldier within the records held here. Many people are working on projects researching men listed on war memorials, whilst others are tracing family members. Using online resources and printed material it is often possible to find information about the men and ensure they are more than just names.

    We’ll also explore what can be discovered about the war period in the archives. As well as researching soldiers there are people who are looking at the history of their town or village in the period to understand how the war affected their locality. As part of the workshop we’ll be getting out original records, including letters from the front line.

    The workshop runs from 10am-12:30pm. To book a place, which costs £8, please go to www.thehiveworcester.org/events.html where you can book and pay online. If you have any questions please email explorethepast@worcestershire.gov.uk or ring 01905 766352.
