Residents in Rutherglen took advantage of a heritage event at the local library on Saturday.
The event was designed to give people an idea of the resources available to them in tracing their family tree or even just finding out about old Rutherglen.
Among those who went along was local author Carol Foreman, who was looking into the history of the shops in Main Street, and Marion Franchetti, who was researching the history of her Rutherglen house.
Librarian Zen Mumford said:“The whole point is to highlight the different resources we have got here that perhaps people aren’t aware of.
“We had local history films on the ground floor and a display on the cinemas and Landemer stuff. We actually had an actress in who was wanting to do research on Rutherglen Rep.
“Obviously we have old newspapers but you can also use the computer to browse Ancestry.com free of charge.”
The next event at Rutherglen Library will be a historic library tour on Saturday, August 8, from 2pm until 3pm.
Tickets for this event cost £2.
Rutherglen Library was built in 1907 and retains some stunning Edwardian features. The tour will let people learn more about the Carnegie Library and hear ghostly tales from around the building, as well as seeing some rooms which are not usually open to the public.
Tickets are available from the library main desk.
