About Local & Family History Show

Lanarkshire Family History Society's annual Local & Family History Show will be taking place in Motherwell Concert Hall on Saturday 27th October. The Show has become a regular event on the genealogy calendar, appealing to everyone with an interest in family history and local heritage.

Talks will include The Scottish Poor Law, DNA for Your Family Tree and Maps for Family History.

Among the exhibitors will be family history societies from many parts of Scotland, national and local heritage organisations, archives and museums, publishers of history-themed books, genealogy supplies companies and major names from the world of genealogy.

There’ll be free family history advice from professional genealogists who are part of the Scottish Genealogy Network and members of Lanarkshire FHS (including military and Irish specialists) to help you with your research.

Information about tickets and an up-to-date list of exhibitors can be found on the show website. Entry costs £2 per person, with talks priced at £3 each or £10 for all four. Children under 12 are admitted free with a paying adult. There's good public transport; free parking; disabled access and facilities.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Local & Family History Show are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
