Workshops launched on how to Research the First World War

Are you researching an ancestor who served during the First World War? Do you want to know more about the contribution your community made to the war effort?

During May the Somerset Remembers team are offering two workshops on how to research the First World War.

If you want to find out more about the role your relatives played in the Great War, search for information about the war’s effect on your community or family, there are a number of resources available at Somerset Heritage Centre to help you.

SR PosterLed by Archivist Liz Grant, the workshop will show you how to use resources such as Somerset newspapers, school records, online sources and national institutions, to research topics such as First World War personnel, a Somerset community or the County Regiments.

The workshop will guide you through the sources available, teach you how to interpret the information and show you how to share your research with others. There will also be a Q&A session.

The workshops take place on Wednesday 7 May at 2.30 pm and Tuesday 13 May at 7pm. They will last for an hour and a half and cost £5 per person, payable in advance. To book call 01823 278805 or visit the Somerset Heritage Centre on Brunel Way, Norton Fitzwarren, Taunton, TA2 6SF.
