10th September – Midland Ancestors took part in a Heritage Open Day at the Birmingham & Midland Institute in Birmingham yesterday. Those who mourned the loss of the “Birmingham Lives” event which ran for the last time in 2016 were pleased to see that many of the same exhibitors were there. We had lots of customers at our book stall where second hand books were particularly popular. There were also many visitors to our Reference Library, where our experts were able to provide guidance in tracing ancestors.
The Birmingham & Midland Institute were so pleased with the success of this event that they are now planning another one for 2018, possibly in the Spring.
