A First World War roadshow will take place at the East Belfast Network Centre on Saturday, June 6.

Organised by Titanic People in conjunction with East Belfast and the Great War, Living Legacies and History Hub Ulster, the event is welcoming people with First World War connections and stories from the area. 

Did you have family who served in the Great War? Were they from East Belfast? And do you have any artefacts that belonged to them or family members? Then the roadshow is for you.

Living Legacies digitisation team will be on hand to record items and stories as well as providing advice on how to preserve artefacts.

A number of other events will also take place throughout the day, exploring East Belfast's Great War heritage:

• 10.30am: Launch of 'Row on Row: East Belfast Remembers 2015'

• 11am: 'The Shipyard and the Home Front during the First World War' - a talk by historian Philip Orr

• 1.30pm: 'Researching East Belfast and the Great War' - a talk by Project Co-ordinator Jason Burke

• 2.45pm: Playing of the Last Post by The Hounds of Ulster

Nigel Henderson from History Hub Ulster will also be available throughout the day to provide tips and pointers on conducting your own First World War family research.
