Free Saturday Library Tours

This event runs over several days/weeks. Dates include:

Sat, 31st Mar 2018
Sat, 14th Apr 2018

11:00 am - 1:00 pm

With an experienced tour guide, our Tours are for people new to family history and those wanting to learn about new items in our collections.

At the Society of Genealogists, we're passionate about family history. Since we started in 1911, we've been collecting family history documents, long before the arrival of local record offices - even typewriters were new. As the National Family History Centre, we are the UK-wide repository for family history documents, images and records. So, we have items that you might not expect to find.

Join our free, guided tours to discover three floors of family history treasures and records, directories and databases - over 120,000 items. Your guide will explain how you can explore our books, CDs, databases and microfilm. You'll get a flavour of our collection of parish register copies and nonconformist registers. Our 'Special', 'Document' and 'Typographical' collections contain amazing items steeped in the UK's rich and diverse cultural heritage. Our collections relate to over 44,000 surnames - yours is probably included. Many documents are originals and date back to the 15th century.

Our tours are free, last 90 minutes and are every second Saturday. Places go very quickly so please book a specific date.

Cost: Free of Charge
