Who do you think you are?
There is tremendous interest in finding out more about our ancestors. It's not surprising when we see so many examples in the media of how our DNA appears to affect our whole lives.
The Alnwick Branch of the Northumberland and Durham Family History Society is based in Bailiffgate. They can help you in many ways. For example you can attend their monthly meetings to see examples of best practice, plus stories about fascinating families and their history. If you are anywhere in the UK, or the world and want to know more about ancestors from the Alnwick area, just use the family history email address to contact them. Note: The Alnwick Branch of the NDFHS is based at, but not a part of Bailiffgate.
Our talks begin at 7.30pm usually on first Tuesdays of the month, and in 2022 may be by Zoom, in person or a "hybrid" In person + Zoom basis depending on Covid restrictions.
