Grantham Museum is looking for a local family to take part in a history project.

The museum is exploring the story of one Grantham family through the First World War. The Harvey’s of Great Gonerby lived through the war and descendants have loaned their letters to the museum. To explore what has changed in the last 100 years and what this family went through, the museum is looking for a modern Grantham family to lead research into the Harvey family story.

Ideally they will have similarities to the Harveys. They had a 20-year-old son and a 16-year-old daughter. The museum will film the process of discovery and turn this journey into an exhibition. If any readers and a couple of members of their family have about a day to give to the project, the museum would like to hear from them to help uncover the real story of Grantham at war.
