The programme of local family history fairs for 2013 starts off with a 'Family history day' this Sunday 14th April, run by the Northern branch of the Wiltshire Family History Society. It runs from 10am to 3pm and is at the Haydon Centre, Haydon Wick, Swindon. There's a talk on 'The workhouse- the lot of the poor' by Barbara Fuller and 'Asylums and their Records' by David Chilton. It promises to be a good day, if you're in the area, it's well worth a visit. There's more information on their website.
