Chorleywood

Family History

We help people to trace their family history, using readily available sources on the internet and in libraries and archives. Each meeting starts with a look at a particular topic, then members can raise queries or problems of any kind.

Our main group is for those with some experience of family history research. We also run occasional 6 week intensive courses for beginners. Details of those can be found by following this link: FAMILY HISTORY (BEGINNERS).

Group Leader:Gillian Hill
Tel.01923 283555
Meeting Venue:The group leader's home
Time:First Monday in the month, at 2pm.

World War 1 Project

A U3A team has researched all those who died in the First World War and came from Chorleywood. Their backgrounds and histories give a fascinating picture of life in the village over 100 years ago. This research has been distilled into a book which, as well as descriptions of each person, includes chapters on the village in 1914. Click on the WW1 project to learn more about the book.
