Horsham district residents are being urged to sign up to a number of new family history research sessions next year to help trace their ancestors.
The workshops, aimed at beginners, are being led by specialists from the Record Office in Chichester throughout 2013.
The sessions, which take place at 10am on the first Wednesday of each month, start on January 9 with a look at reading old handwriting.
The next, on February 6, will then help people with popular family history websites Ancestry and FindMyPast - used by hit BBC show Who Do You Think You Are?
Several other sessions will also look at using the Record Office archives, dating from 780AD, and how to use them for tracing relatives.
Tickets for the sessions cost £7.50 and include a free cup of tea or coffee.
To find out more contact the Record Office on 01243 753 602 or visit Orchard Street, Chichester, PO19 1DD.
