Family History

Family History, sometimes referred to generically, as genealogy, is all about discovering your family tree, and finding out your origins.


We have two Groups, Family History 1 one is for people wanting to start to trace their history or who have only recently started and need to know how to go about it, whilst the other Group, Family History 2, s is intended for people who already have some experience of the subject.

Family History 2

Venue:


Group Leader’s Home

Meeting Dates

 & Times:

4rd Tuesday in the month

2:30pm

Additional Charges:

None

Description: This Group looks at all aspects of basic Family History.


We usually spend the first part of our meeting looking at some aspect of information gathering – the census, accessing archive material, or at “family history” as opposed to a collection of names and dates.


Over tea and coffee we get down to problem solving for individuals, displaying information and so on. As this is a basic course we would expect members to gradually outgrow it and move on – although it is always good to see them come back!


You are welcome to join us…..it's good to know who you are – including the skeletons in the cupboards!
