Our families’ story

As part of Berwick 900 programme of events for 2015, The Berwick Families Project, run by the Berwick Record Office, is helping to trace descendants of families that have historical links with the town and the Berwick 900 story themes. A team of volunteers is using the Record Office’s unique archive, with social media and the internet, to discover the stories of family connections through the ages and encourage family members to contribute information and visit the town.
