Troon family history event in May

Troon @ Ayrshire Family History Society, along with South Ayrshire Libraries, is holding a family history based weekend event on the 7th and 8th of May.

On the evening of Friday the 7th at 7:30 Tom Barclay from South Ayrshire Libraries will give a talk at Troon Library entitled The Duke's Railway. The talk will focus on the Kilmarnock Troon Railway, the first railway service in Scotland to be authorised by Act of Parliament and to use a steam locomotive. Admission is free.

This will be followed up by a family history open day also in Troon Library between the hours of 11 am and 3:30 pm on Saturday the 8th, where members of Troon @ Ayrshire FHS will be on hand to help with enquiries. A range of CDs and books published by the society will be on sale at the event.
