A WREXHAM historian has urged enthusiasts of the past to dust off their archives and delve into their family background this summer.
Glyndr University history lecturer Peter Bolton is to lead a number of three-day courses on the techniques of researching family and community history this month at the Wrexham campus.
He said factors such as the early release of details from the 1911 census meant there was never a better time to study family history as significant new information was available for budding researchers.
Mr Bolton said: “This will be just one of the areas we will be looking at during the courses.
“There has been an unprecedented growth in researching family history and this course will provide a stress free introduction to the latest resources and techniques.”
So far, two separate dates have been confirmed for the free courses: July 6-8 and July 20-22.
Other dates may be added depending on the level of interest.
