Anyone inspired by the current BBC programme, Who Do You Think You Are? considering researching their own ancestry is invited to come along and find out how to begin.
The Bourne Branch of the Lincolnshire Family History Society is holding an open day from 10am to 4pm at the United Reformed Church Hall in Spalding Road on August 17 where there will be advice, support and tips on offer for all levels of researchers.
There will be experienced researchers on hand to give advice to those who are already researching their family tree and have got stuck.
The day is free to all to attend.
