Welcome to the Making History website! It's currently under development so check back soon for further updates.

The family history adventure in schools continues apace with over 350 pupils in Lincoln and London literally 'Making History’!

They will be working hard 'till Christmas to find something inspiring in their family history from around the time period of World War I and turn those discoveries into short 5 minute films. Then, in the New Year, they will show their films at local screenings prior to the best films being screened at the special end of project film premiere at the British Film Institute, on Thursday, February 4th, 2016.

You will see that, in addition to our May 2015 launch video, we now have three new videos for you to look at to give you a further taste of what we and the children have to do. More video clips of children, parents and grandparents taking part in the project will follow over the coming weeks! Watch this space!!

All the best from the Making History team.
