Society is set to meet
Lanarkshire family history society will host a drop- in session in Airdrie this Monday.
The event takes place in the community room at Tesco, in the town’s retail park, from 7pm to 9pm.
All are welcome to attend for advice on researching their family history, with organisers saying: “Society members will be on hand to assist those who’ve hit a brick wall or who would like help to take the first steps in digging up their roots.”
Meanwhile, the society’s first meeting of the new season takes place next Thursday, September 14, at 7pm in the GLO Centre in Motherwell.
Guest speaker Harry Doyle will describe the connections to Hamilton of Admiral Thomas Cochrane, nicknamed the Sea Wolf by Napoleon and who proved an inspiration for naval fiction of the 19th and 20th century.
