Lanarkshire FHS news

A huge thanks to Lanarkshire FHS for their hospitality and warm reception on Thursday, where I gave a talk on Irish online resources. The society has been very busy, with many new ventures!

The society now has a new Resource Centre at 47 Crosshill Street, Motherwell, ML1 1RU, which is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 12.00 to 5.00pm, and Thursdays from 5.00pm to 9.00pm (closed every second Thursday in the month). Volunteers are being sought to try to help expand these hours further, so do contact them if you can help in any way - the group can be e-mailed at society@lanarkshirefhs.org.uk. Please note that the Resource Centre address is not the organisation's postal address - this remains as Lanarkshire Family History Society, c/o Motherwell Heritage Centre, Local History Room, High Road, Motherwell, ML1 3HU.

In addition, the society has set up a new Irish interests group. Meetings are planned in the Resource Centre for Mondays 20th April, 18th May and 15th June. If you have an Irish connection, well worth joining!

The next speaker will be Andrew Nicoll on Thursday 14th May at 7.00pm in the GLO Centre in Motherwell. Andrew will be talking about the Scottish Catholic Archives.

Thanks again to everyone for a great evening!
