Research your World War I ancestors

Event date | Apr 27, 2015

Chelsea Library

2-4pm, April 27th 2015

Friendly staff will be on hand to help to help you use Ancestry to discover fascinating original documents relating to your family in World War One. You will then have the opportunity to create a permanent memorial to your relatives by adding the information you uncover to the library’s Kensington and Chelsea World War One Project website and the Imperial War Museum’s Lives of the First World War. Do bring artefacts, photograph and any other items and we’ll be happy to help you upload these, create scans and produce digital copies for you to keep.

Do you also fancy yourself as a digital curator or do you simply have an eye for a catchy recruitment poster or striking photograph? Help the library choose what should feature on their World War One website. All participants will have the chance to learn about the website, add material they’ve selected and put up personal responses.
