Do you want to find out about your ancestors? Local author and family historian Brian Smailes is running a class at Penistone Library to help you do just that. Some can trace their relatives back to the 16th century and it brings some exciting surprises.

One person’s ancestor was knighted in the 1600’s and owned a large house. Others were famous too.

Help will be given throughout and it is very enjoyable, even addictive.

The first class will take place on Wednesday 30th September from 09.30 to 11.30am and will run for 10 weeks. There are a few places available, but book quickly.

For further details, call Brian Smailes on 01226 217 695 or leave your name and number at the counter in the library.
