Family History Detectives – 2nd April, 1pm – 3.30pm at Heritage HQ at St Marie’s, Lugsdale Rd, Widnes  

Let our experts help you find out who you are!

On the 2nd April we are being joined by family history experts who will be on hand to help you explore your family history.

Inspired by Musson + Retallick’s exhibition ‘The Migrant’, which will be on display, this event will explore how to research your ancestors. Find out who they were, where they came from and what jobs they did – whether they came from Halton or not.

We will have experts from Cheshire Archives, Catalyst Science Discovery Centre and Halton Heritage Partnership with us at St Marie’s for the afternoon with access to online resources and documents.
We will also have the St Marie’s log books available which set out all the parish notices and marriage bans as far back as the 1860’s to help visitors find references to their family members.

Fun activities for families, come along and see what you can find out. The event is free for all.
