Who do you think you are? Find out at Fairford

You don't have to be rich or famous to get help in tracing your family tree. Experts will be on hand at Fairford Library on Wednesday 15 November to help you delve into your family's past.

The Family and Local History Day is an opportunity to speak to experts from:

* Gloucestershire Archives
* Gloucestershire Family History Society
* Fairford and Lechlade History Societies

Local County Councillor, Ray Theodoulou, said: "Previous Family History Days held at Fairford Library have proved extremely popular with people of all ages a who are interested in their family backgrounds. This event will provide further marvellous opportunities to find our more about your ancestors, and delve into your family and local history."

The experts will be available between 10am and 4.30pm and there is no need to book in advance for this free event.

Heather Forbes, County and Diocesan Archivist for Gloucestershire, said: "This event is one of a series which Gloucestershire Archives is holding in libraries around Gloucestershire this year. It is a good example of the way in which libraries and archives together with the county's Family History Society and local history groups work together to provide high quality and interesting services for local people."
