Going back into history

Doncaster and District Family History Society is having an open day at the Palgrave Research Centre in Balby to raise awareness of their archives.

The event on Thursday, October 4, from 2pm to 5pm and 6pm to 8pm at the King Edward Road centre will offer help with family history research. Volunteers will be on hand discuss resources.
