Branching into the Past

By Lucy Chipperfield

Investigating and discovering history was central to Tilbury’s Open Heritage Day last weekend. However, it was not just Tilbury’s history which was under the magnifying glass. Thanks to the Thameside Family History Group, visitors were offered the chance to investigate their very own history!

John Matthews, a committee member for the Thameside Family History Group, took the time to talk to YourThurrock about this incredibly popular hobby.
