The British Newspaper Archive will be attending the *SAFHS Conference in Dundee on Saturday 21 April. The conference takes place in the Bonar Hall at Dundee University and runs from 9.45am to 4.30pm. Admission is free if you’re just attending the fair, or £12 if you’re going to the lectures.
Although we won’t be dressed up as Victorian news girls and boys for this event, we’ll still be giving out copies of our Victorian-style newspaper. We’ll also be giving demos of the website, and offering helpful tips and advice to people who are looking to trace their ancestors.
With so many family history societies attending the conference, it promises to be a grand day out. The conference will also be very useful for any newbies to family history, with loads of free tips and advice on offer from the experts. So if you’re attending this event, please drop in and say ‘hello’.
