Join us at our Welcome Event to celebrate the opening of the Christchurch Family History Expo, with guest speaker Myko Clelland, Findmypast.

Myko will be speaking on Finding ancestors in British Employment records. Our ancestors’ occupations can provide a host of records to teach us more about family history. This presentation asks where can we look to find more detail about what our relations did, and how it can help us to tell more of a story of their lives

Refreshments will be served.

Cost: $15.25 (excluding $1.25 booking fee)
