Family & Local History Fair – Pudsey

Only five more sleeps until the Family & Local History Fair at Pudsey Civic Hall on Saturday 2nd April.

I’m really looking forward to what should be a good day.  The website promises a full programme of speakers although I can’t find any information about who they are or what the subjects will be.

There is also a long list of exhibitors.  I am particularly looking forward to meeting and talking to the folks from Keighley & District Family History Society; Lancashire Family History & Heraldry Society; Wharfedale Family History Group; and the Guild of One Name Studies.

I suspect that my wallet might take a bit of a hammering as I go in search of new and even more useful resources.

I am a bit disappointed that the West Yorkshire Archives and North Yorkshire Records Office don’t appear to be attending – but maybe the show is a bit too provincial for them.  Not to worry they will be at the Yorkshire Family History Fair at York Racecourse in June.  This will no doubt be the subject of further posts both before and after the event.

I am dragging my wife along on Saturday, although she won’t be quite as interested as her ancestors are from Lincolnshire and Staffordshire.  However I will need someone to carry my purchases!!
