- Workhouse Connections
Friday 27th and Saturday 28th February 2015
Over two days you will hear from experts in both family research and workhouse history, explore one of the best preserved workhouse sites in the country, and have the opportunity to get advice on your own research. Find out what to do next when you discover a relative in a workhouse; what sources are available and how do you access them? Discuss the variation within the workhouse system and the emotional impact on families of discovering a workhouse connection. There will also be plenty of time to talk with other interested researchers over buffet lunches both days and dinner on Friday.
The museums are closed for the winter and reopen on Saturday 14 Feb 2015. Please contact us about group / education visits in the closed season.
