The County Record Office at Newport will be offering a free session for new users on Tuesday 10th March from 10am to midday.

The County Record Office, at 26 Hillside, Newport, holds a wealth of archive material and the free session is perfect for anyone just starting out with researching local, house or family history.

The material held spans the 12th to 21st centuries, and includes records of parish churches, estates, families, businesses, schools and local government.

The archive is invaluable for anyone studying family history and those studying the history of their house, or with an interest in a whole range of local history topics.

On the day, there will be an introduction to what is available at the Record Office; including ideas on how to use the records and resources to get you started with your research.
