SEE LEISTON GRAMMAR PHOTOS THROUGH THE YEARS!
TRACE YOUR MILITARY ANCESTORS!
DATE YOUR OLD FAMILY PHOTOS!
A Bumper Family History Open Day will be held on Saturday 23rd February at the Long Shop Museum, Leiston, IP16 4ES, from 11am to 4pm.
A variety of exhibits will be on show, including local graveyard surveys, war memorials, directories, parish registers, census returns, old maps of the area – and Peter Drew’s extensive collection of historical newspaper cuttings and postcards featuring the Sizewell, Aldringham and Friston areas.
A special feature of our Open Day this year will be the results of our project to preserve the Leiston Grammar School sports team photographs, of which there are over 80, from the period 1933 to 1968. The digitised photos, catalogue, etc will be available to view at the Open Day, and at our Help Centre at the Old Council Offices in Leiston, and copies will be provided to any interested alumni or members of their families. The original photographs have now been deposited with the Suffolk Record Office.
And back by popular demand – Have you got any old family photos which you can't put a date to? Bring them along and let our expert advise you.
Are you trying to trace your military ancestors? or your family tree? Advice and help will be available from experienced researchers. And we’ll have our computers with (hopefully) Internet to help with your research.
Free entrance, but donations to the Long Shop appreciated. Light refreshments.
