What the heck are archives?

West Yorkshire History Centre, 127 Kirkgate, Wakefield, WF1 1JG

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

This short workshop, hosted at the West Yorkshire History Centre, aims to provide us with an understanding of what Archives are, who West Yorkshire Archive Service are and what the West Yorkshire History Centre is for.

You’ll learn basic skills in family history (how to start or grow your family tree), in archive research (using it for family history or local history interests), how to identify what an Archive is and how it is relevant to you and will gain confidence and skills in using Archive services both online and in person for both family history and local history research.

But most importantly, you’ll hopefully have fun!

This workshop is part of a series being held by the West Yorkshire Archive Service. Why not check out the whole series and book your places…
