GOSPORT’S Discovery Centre wants to help throw some light on people’s naval ancestry.

The centre’s Naval Special Collection will be opened up for browsing and research for people who have sailors or submariners in their family tree.

The event will reveal records from the collections which could uncover what these people did in the Royal Navy and whereabouts they served.

There will also be a number of talks about how to find other records.

The event takes place on February 3 from 10am and costs £20.

Included in the price is a visit to the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Haslar Road.
