Family History 


Researching family history can be both an absorbing and frustrating pastime and all researchers have problems that can often be shared and sometimes solved with the aid of others. Our group is composed of members with all levels of experience and expertise and the informality of our monthly meetings provides a relaxed atmosphere where ideas are exchanged and assistance given to everyone attending. Occasional guest speakers help to increase our knowledge and regular visits to research establishments assist our endeavours.

Meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 2pm usually at a member's home.

Programme - 2023

I attach a "broad" outline for our meetings this year and would welcome hosts for each month and topics to be discussed. A sample few are listed below but if you have any further suggestions please let me know.

Help with Tracing Your Ancestors


The Family History Group would like to offer help to anyone who wants to make a start on tracing, or discovering further information about, their ancestors. We would use various resources available to us through our subscriptions to online family history sites. To start with we would try to work backwards along a single line (Surname).
