Laura Berry shows people how to trace their family history back to the First World War period at BBC Birmingham's Public Space in the Mailbox on Thursday 21st August 2014 from 11am to 4pm. If you would like to book a place in a free 40-minute workshop and find out if you had an ancestor who went to the Front, email Jenny Wilkes at firstname.lastname@example.org. The workshops are part of the 'Forward 100: Birmingham at War' project, running alongside a series of events planned by BBC Birmingham to mark the centenary of the First World War. To find out more about the project and other free workshops taking place at the Mailbox this summer, go to http://forward100birmingham.wordpress.com/summer-workshops.
