RootsTech is coming to London!

Open Day Talks & Tours
Our Society here in London will be putting on special events including Free Open Days either side of London Rootstech. If you are taking a longer break don't forget to pay us a visit. You will be treated to a tour of the library and a talk in the lecture room. Many of these are either morning or afternoon sessions, you could combine them with our free research pass to make a nice research day out. The events are free but you do need to book as there will be limited space. View a two-page leaflet . All bookings can be made here.
