Family History Group @ Prince & Princesses Event @ Leigh Park Community Centre
Sep 23 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

Are there any Princes or Princesses in your family tree?

The Westbury Family History group will be on hand to show you how you can get started in the fascinating activity. And although they won’t be able to go back to medieval times in just a few minutes, they can probably find out quite a bit about your family from names, a few dates of birth and some addresses.

No need to book, no additional charge, just walk up and ask them – the group will be in the hall during the Princes and Princesses event.

Note this event is only available to those attending the Princes, Princesses, Nights & Damsels event.
