Making the Connection: Railway Records for Family History conference – York
27 September 2014, 9.30am - 5.30pm. Price: £35.
A joint day conference held at the National Railway Museum between the NRM and Your Fair Ladies, guiding people seeking their railway ancestry through the material which can be found in archives and libraries whilst scene-setting British railways’ rich history. Expert speakers will set railways as a context for past lives, look at the history of the railway industry, reveal the true nature of mass leisure travel by rail in the late 19th century, and show how the railways quickly became a new opportunity for crime. Includes lunch and refreshments. Please arrive for registration at 9.30am.
A discount ticket price of £30 is available for Friends of the NRM but must be booked by phone or in person at the NRM (tel: 08448 153139, Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm). Please have your membership number to hand when booking.
