Family History Group

Family History Programme for 2019

Meetings are from 10.00 am to 11.45 am at Holcot Church Room on the second Wednesday each month for which there is small charge of £1.00 per person to cover the hire of the room, tea, coffee, biscuits, etc. We are a friendly group who welcome new members and enjoy learning from each other. Please contact John Roberts, the Group Leader, at john.k.roberts@talktalk.net or on 01604 642732 for more information.

The idea is that we all try to contribute something, however brief, on the topic set for the meeting, with a time limit of 15 minutes each. We may need to vary the planned programme in the light of experience eg by carrying forward unfinished topics. Chris Rowe has again kindly offered to bring her projector to any meeting if it is required. Please let me know whenever you want to use it.
