We’re touring the UK with BBC World War One At Home Live Events between June and September this year. Here’s an idea of what to expect from us.

On 21 June 2014 we’ll be in Stoke on Trent, at Kings Hall for BBC Radio Stoke Family History Day. On 24 June we’ll visit Blackpool for Armed Forces Week with BBC Radio Lancashire. Then on 28 June we’ll be in Woolwich for the Great Get Together and Armed Forces Day with BBC London 94.9.

A chance to try a taster session

We’ll be running short taster sessions on how Lives of the First World War works – so if you haven’t tried using the site yet, come along and see how it all works.

If you’re already familiar with the website, we’d love you to tell any friends who haven’t tried it yet to come along.

What to expect from a taster session

Sessions will be short and introductory, as we want to show as many people the site as possible. We’ll take you through the site’s key features, such as adding to a Life Story, searching for someone, and the benefits of becoming a Friend of Lives of the First World War.

  • Remember, this is the permanent digital memorial – rather than bringing them to the event to show us, we encourage you to scan images of your mementoes when you get home. Read our 10 tips on creating digital images of documents and photographs for Lives of the First World War.nike air max tailwind
  • We’re sorry that we won’t be able to look in detail at any mementoes, as these taster sessions are intended to show as many people how to use Lives of the First World War as possible. However, stay tuned for our History topics, which are arriving on the site very soon. These will provide guidance for you on identifying and learning more about medals and other common artefacts.new balance 845

We’re looking forward to introducing as many of you as possible to Lives of the First World War!
