SMRT family history
This layer was created by a group of Year 9 students from St Mary Redcliffe & Temple School in Bristol as a space in which to celebrate family history. The students conducted independent research into their ancestry as part of a school project and collected artefacts along the way such as photos, jewellery, letters, certificates and newspaper clippings. Some of these objects and their associated stories or memories are represented here, bringing to life the characters which emerged through the process. Through this project, the students gained a deeper understanding of their personal connection to Bristol and we hope this collection illustrates what family history can tell us about ourselves and our local communities.
