    Who Do You Think They Are

    March 13

    Who Do You Think They Are

    Mon 13 Mar - Sat 1 Apr

    10am - 4pm

    Who Do You Think They Are? is an exhibition looking for answers as well as providing tips for family history fans keen to learn how to help identify long forgotten people in family photographs.  

    It’s a sad but common occurrence when rooting through old family photographs that you come across a picture of a group of people but you don’t know who the group is, or if there is someone there you should recognise.

    Take the photograph below; on looking more closely you can see from the clothes they are wearing and the charabanc, that the picture was taken in the 1920s or 1930s. It appears the group is enjoying their day out but who are these people? Why is it in the family collection of old photographs? 

    If this sounds familiar then the Who Do You Think They Are? exhibition can help.

    The exhibition is presented by The Forum in partnership with Let’s Talk magazine, Age UK Norwich and the Norfolk Heritage Centre at the Millennium Library. One of the highlights of the exhibition is the inclusion of Andrew Tatham’s ‘A Group Photograph’, a culmination of 21 years of research and creation based on a First World War photograph.

    Staff from Norfolk Heritage Centre will be on hand to help and offer advice of other resources available including Picture Norfolk, FindMyPast and HistoryPin.

    The exhibition will also include a special photograph memorial where visitors can add photographs of their unknown relatives.
