The Great Suffolk Mantelpiece Project!

What’s on your mantelpiece?
We would like to start a conversation with you about family history and stories about Suffolk. We thought a mantelpiece was a great way to begin; often it’s the place we keep treasured objects and family portraits or keepsakes.

Come along to one of our special sessions and we will record your voice for the archives of Suffolk for future generations to listen to. Bring along a photo of your mantelpiece or one of the items from it to help get the conversation started!  Record Office staff will also be at hand to advise you how to get started researching your  family history.

We will be at:

  • Brandon Country Park, Thurs 21st September 2017 9.30am – 4.30pm
  • Woodbridge Library, Fri 29th September 2017 9.30am —4.30pm
  • Museum of East Anglian Life, Stowmarket, Thurs 12th October 2017 9.30am —4.30pm
