Lanarkshire Research

Friday was our first full day together and we hit the road running. We headed into Motherwell by train where we went to the North Lanarkshire Archives. Here, the full group were given an overview of the collections and then it was time to "hit the books". 






Half of the group stayed to research in original records and the other half walked over to the Lanarkshire Family History Society. We started our time with tea, then each participant was paired up with a volunteer and the research began in earnest. 




At 1:00, it was switch over time with the two groups trading places. The morning group started their time at the Family History Society not with tea, but with lunch. Then, once again, each participant was paired up with a volunteer and they were off and running.
