Hove Library will be hosting two WW1 Centenary events in the month of November and we invite you attend!
Explore our Historic WW1 Collections
Our first event is another edition of our popular ‘Discover the WW1 Resources held at
Hove Library’ series. This session is taking place at Hove Library on Saturday, 8th, November, 2014, 11:00am-12:00pm.
We invite you to explore our First World War Special Collections and resources with Rare Books Librarian, Margaret Curson.
Collections will include:
- The Hove Roll of Honour – Service Records and Photographs
- Newspaper Cuttings and Microfilm
- Rare Books, Scrapbooks and Local Street Directories
- Local History Photographs
- How to use online Family History Resources, such as ‘Ancestry‘ and ‘Find my Past‘
Learn More about the Hove Roll of Honour
Our second event is a talk from local military historian Trevor Cox and will taking place on Tuesday, 11th, November, 2014, 14:30-15:30pm
Trevor will talk about how his own personal research has further expanded upon the service records, letters and photographs compiled in The Hove Roll of Honour.
The Hove Roll of Honour was compiled by local librarian John William Lister at the end of the First World War. It is a collection of war records, photographs and local ephemera. These items were donated by the family members of those service personnel who lived in Hove and died fighting in the First World War.
Join us on this intimate journey into the past and explore the lives of those Hove residents who lived and died serving their country during WW1.
Both these events will take place in the Wolseley Room at Hove Library and free tea and coffee will be provided.
These session are both free to attend.
Space is limited so please book in advance by phone on 01273 290800 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
