A glimpse into area’s heritage

HERITAGE fans from Hartlepool and east Durham are being invited to a family history event.

Yesterday Belongs to You is a family history fair organised by County Durham History and Heritage Forum, featuring displays from more than 100 local history and heritage groups, including Wheatley Hill History Club, offering a range of local and family history books, postcards, prints and other attractions.

There will also be an archive film show from the North East Film and Television Archive, children’s fun and a chance to tour Durham County Record Office’s archive strongroom.

The event, at Durham’s County Hall tomorrow from 10am-4pm, will be opened by forum president and television presenter John Grundy.
