Fife Family History Fair is Scotland’s premier family history event.
A highly successful Fair took place on Saturday 17 September at the Rothes Halls in Glenrothes. 474 delegates, exhibition visitors and stallholders came along to the event - thanks to all who took part!
Five talks on finding out about your family history using Census records were given. 37 groups and organisations had displays and stalls in the exhibition hall.
We will be putting copies of some of the lectures on this website in the near future.
