Tracing Your Military Ancestors.
At the Midland Ancestors Family History Centre, which is in the BMI, 9 Margaret Street in Birmingham city centre.
In Remembrance of those in both our own, and other families who whilst in the armed forces or civilian services were lost in defence of democracy, Midlands Ancestors are pleased to offer a Tracing Your Military Ancestors event.
Join us for this Family History Surgery & Help Desk event at the Midland Ancestors Family History Centre to help find your military ancestors, uncover their stories and grow your family tree.
Our knowledgeable team of volunteer genealogists will be available to provide assistance, answer questions, and help you navigate through our numerous resources and databases. Whether you’re just starting out or need help overcoming a ‘brickwall’, our experts are here to support you.
During the event, you’ll have the chance to learn valuable tips and tricks, discover new research methods, and connect with fellow enthusiasts. With access to all our records and documents, you’ll be able to piece together your family’s story and gain a deeper understanding of your heritage.
At the Midlands Ancestors Family History Centre the Reference Library hosts almost 10,000 items including copies of parish registers of burials, marriages and baptisms, wills, monumental inscriptions, street and trade directories, censuses and maps.
The Centre also has computers from which you can access the internet and all digital resources we hold. As a FamilySearch Affiliate Library we have access to an estimated 400 million images of original records that you can’t see on your home computer.
The event takes place in the Midlands Ancestors Family History Centre which is located in the BMI, 9 Margaret Street in Birmingham City Centre.
We will pause at 11:00 am for a few minutes of reflection and remembrance.
