A project to help people across Tyne and Wear in northeastern England unearth their family history has been given a £45,000 (roughly $71,000 in U.S. funds) lottery grant. The What’s Your Story? Discovering Family History project is based at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle and run by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums. The Heritage Lottery Fund cash will enable people to research and share families' histories.
Specially trained family historians and volunteers will work with local people and offer help with searches within Tyne & Wear Archives, which is located at Discovery Museum.
