Personal Heritage

Writing on Walls - some days, I know why I go to work: "It's the first in the country we think (first lending library specialising in personal heritage which is in the same building as a local studies reference library and an archive, and the rest, of course).

We had an excellent opening talk from Nick Barratt, who introduced me to the term 'Personal Heritage'. Which is not just a new name for Family History, but includes (as far as I can see, in his useage) social history (where it is of personal significance), local history (ditto), and landscape archaeology (ditto). I'm going to use it for _anything_ to do with the past (ditto)."

"Personal Heritage" - Google Search

One stop history spot: "discover your family history with the opening of the new lending library at Surrey History Centre on May 30.

The new facility provides a loan collection of over 300 books guiding users on how to do local, family and house history, self-service library loans, returns and renewals facility, access to the People's Network internet service, online reference resources and access to community information via the Surrey Libraries Catalogue.

Providing a seamless facility for family history and local history enthusiasts of all ages from beginners through to specialist researchers"
