Drop-in advice sessions

Welcome. This page tells you about regular drop-in advice sessions provided by the society at The Centre for Heritage and Family History (on the second floor of Reading Central Library), and at other locations across Berkshire.

Drop-in advice sessions in Reading have the added benefit of offering the full facilities of the Research Zone at The Centre for Heritage and Family History. These are FREE to attend, no booking is necessary, simply drop in!

Society volunteers run similar sessions in principal libraries across Berkshire, including those at Abingdon, Bracknell, Cippenham, Lambourn, Newbury, Thatcham, Wantage and Wokingham.

All are FREE to attend, and you can usually just drop in, but some local libraries prefer you to book your time slot in advance, to avoid disappointment if sessions are busy. See the sessions running this month (and topics) by clicking on the Drop-in Advice Sessions tab — Main menu (on the left) — or check the Events Calendar.

Gather what you know, decide your questions, bring them along, and get some friendly help and advice with your research — wherever your ancestors came from.

Always check that you have the right date, time and details of an event before you travel. Any late changes will be displayed on the calendar.
