The Upper Dales Family History Group celebrated its 10th Anniversary in October 2010.

The Exhibition was called 'Those Who Left The Dales' and covered people who left Swaledale and Wensleydale and their tributary valleys.

Some went over the border to Lancashire or Durham, but others went to Australia and America and many other far flung places.

Our members collected and transcribed letters and wills that recorded those journeys, and the lives of the migrants and they were on show from Saturday 2nd October 2010 until Saturday 16th October AT TENNANTS AUCTION HOUSE LEYBURN.

There were also various workshops throughout the two weeks.

Sponsored by Grassroots Grants, the Office of the Third Sector, the Community Development Foundation, The Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust, and York and North Yorkshire Community Fund

WE HELD A DINNER TO CELEBRATE THE 10TH BIRTHDAY OF THE GROUP.
