The Friday Café at St David’s, set up using some of the Neighbourhood Fund allocation for local Councillors Ruth Hirschfield, Frank Hont and Jeremy Wolfson, has run successfully for more than two years.

Roger Hull, Research Officer from the city council’s archives service (pictured right) was on hand to explain how to trace family trees, and spoke about the resources available both online in the city’s libraries.

Councillor Ruth Hirschfield said: “This was a great event, and we got a lot of people trying to find out more about tracing their family tree. We’d like to thank Roger Hull from the council’s archives service for being so helpful.”
