Doncaster 1914-1918 At Home, at War

To mark the centenary of the First World War, people across Doncaster or anyone with a local connection, are being encouraged to help build a picture of life in the area between 1914-1918.
A series of events and exhibitions will explore the role of the borough and its people in the conflict, both at home and on the front line.

Wanted: Volunteers for the Palgrave Research Centre and Other Posts

We are looking to recruit some more volunteers to help out at the Palgrave Research Centre. As most of you will already be aware we always have two volunteers on duty whenever the centre is open. The volunteers are there to help people discover the resources we have available in the centre and support them to do their own research. You do not have to be an expert in family history research, but you need to be familiar with using the internet and have an awareness of the main commercial websites Findmypast and Ancestry.
