Family History Course Reunion

Friday 17 January, 10.30am - 1pm
  • Have you taken a family history course or workshop at Surrey History Centre? If so come along to our reunion where they will be opportunities to catch up, swap tips and experiences with each other and gain advice from Surrey History Centre experts. There will also be a talk as detailed below and staff available to discuss the experience of DNA testing for family history and general family history advice. Tea, coffee and cake will be served.
    • Life and Labour in a County Village- or Learn to Love your Ag Labs!
    • A talk based on a study of a rural village on the Surrey/Hampshire border which reveals the often hidden lives of agricultural workers in the latter half of the 19th century. The talk focuses on the changes to agricultural life in general during this period, and also how these changes affected individuals and small communities. It also explores some of the many sources that can be used to discover more about agricultural labourers up to the outbreak of the First World War.

Surrey Heritage

Surrey Heritage looks after the county's history. Our collection includes old newspapers, photographs, illustrations, family history records and even letters signed by Henry VIII. We use these items to bring history to life for all communities and ages from early years to adult learners. Anyone can use the archive at Surrey History Centre, just bring along a library card or some ID.

We hold lots of exciting events and exhibitions throughout the year, including our Annual Lecture and Heritage Showcase events.
