Family History

Family History within Barnsley U3A started more than 9 years ago as a self-help group using primarily the internet and this continues today. In those years the approach to our research has progressed from a somewhat chaotic paper and online method to a structured one using Ancestry.co.uk. We also use the many supporting websites that are available to us to both add and confirm the detail we have recorded so a working knowledge of computers is essential.

Initially we had one group but as numbers increased we had to split into two with the more experienced in one group and the less experienced in the other. In the last few years we have met each Monday morning at Priory Campus, in early 2014 we made changes and we now have one group meeting at Priory Campus twice monthly but the more experienced group has moved to Dodworth Library and they meet each Wednesday morning.
As of January 2018 we now have another 'newbie' group meeting at Dodworth Library on the 2nd and 4th Weds 1.30-3.30pm

Should you be interested in joining one of our groups please contact the Coordinator(s) for the day and time of interest.
