Everything is online now, but a recent survey found that 6.1 million people in the UK are digitally disengaged, while another 22% do not have the essential digital skills needed for day-to-day life.
We’re doing a series of free family tree events to show people that learning how to use a computer can be fun. They’re all part of Fortis Living’s Communities Week drive to help people help themselves.
We’re offering to create free three generation family trees – so if you, or anyone you know would like to come along call 07879483377.
Alternatively, if you’re interested in genealogy and would like to help as a volunteer please get in touch. Don’t worry if you’re not an IT whizz kid. We’ll train you!
