27 MARCH 2017. DAVID SCRIMGEOUR: PROPER PEOPLE
Using many of the surviving original records, David’s talk will shine a powerful light on the lives of some of the patients who were admitted into the West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum in Wakefield between 1818 and 1869.
OSSETT LOCAL AND FAMILY HISTORY NETWORK
The network meets monthly with the aim of bringing together both beginners and more experienced local and family historians in order to exchange advice and information. Meetings are held on the second Friday of each month , usually in Ossett Library. However, as the Library is currently in temporary premises, meetings will be held in Horbury Library from 11.00am to 12.30pm. There will not be a meeting on Good Friday 14th April, so the next network will be on 12th May when we will be looking at old newspapers.
