On Saturday (26 October) a brand new Heritage and Culture event will take place at Central Library which will see a day full of talks and sessions which help people date and trace their family history.
There will also be 40 stallholders from groups such as Garston Historical Society, Friends of Anfield Cemetery, Williamson Tunnels Heritage Centre and the Anglican Cathedral Archive who will be on hand to give advice to visitors.
A series of ticketed talks will kick-off at 10am with Liverpool Record Office researcher, Roger Hull who will look at how key dates in the city’s history could have impacted on many family histories.

Tours will take in the conservation studios and the Black Punch exhibition which traces the history of boxing in Liverpool as part of Black History Month.
A Windrush documentary called The Descendants will be shown, followed by a Q&A session with representatives from Blackburne House who produced the piece of work.
Tickets for the talks cost just £5 and are available from Central Library’s website or can be purchased from the library on the day.
The event has been organised in partnership with the Liverpool and SW Lancashire Family History Society.
