Times And Tides

Monday, 1st July 2019

Does your family have a link to Govan, maybe even to Fairfield? Do you think they might but you don’t know how you would find out? Are you interested in the social history of Govan?
Come along to our Times and Tides event organised by our Family History Group on the 6th of July between 10am and 4pm!
Explore our research on the lives and times of Govanites when shipbuilding along the Clyde was in its heyday. Find out about the famous people with links to Fairfield and search our lists of former Fairfield apprentices and World War 1 soldiers from Govan to see if you can find your family.
Share your stories about Govan and Fairfield to help us further our research. Our Family History Group has been diligently compiling records about the social history of Govan and its shipyards, and trying to uncover information about Fairfield’s former employees, but records of workers are hard to find. Help us to piece together the puzzle by sharing your memories and memorabilia.
Learn about how to trace your family tree and develop your own local history projects from our Family History Group.
Tea and coffee will be available and there will be activities for children, so bring along the whole family!
