As it's cold in August, we have arranged for you to stay home! 

OK it's the not the only reason, but always look on the bright side...! It is National Family History Month and at the GSV we also have plenty of regular talks and sessions that you can access at home.

We have developed a suite of events that are being delivered through our Zoom license.

Our GSV August events are advertised on our website. They include:

  • classes conducted by our librarians Linley Hooper and Meg Bate 
  • Discussion Circles where you can chat about researching specific topics or geographical areas
  • meetings of the Irish Ancestry Group and the International Settlers Group
  • DNA talks which will be presented by Alan Rhodes
  • sessions to assist you with your Scottish research. 


There is something of interest for everyone. If you did not have an opportunity to attend an event at the Centre now is your opportunity to join online.

Make sure you book! Log in to the GSV website as a member to book your place, and the session details with a clickable link will be emailed back as part of your booking confirmation.

Participate and enjoy our events.
