Family History

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.

If your family roots were in Alnwick then you will be able to learn a great deal more about the town as it was in olden days by visiting our sister site Bailiffgate Collections. 

If you have a specific question about your heritaage,  or would like to know more about your family history and how to trace it, we may be able to help. Just send as much detail as you already have to our web address below. 


Please note that the nearest venue for family history talks is now Belford.
