The Spelthorne U3A Family History Group, started in 1997, convenes once a month (usually the fourth Thursday) at the Group Leaders’ home. Space, time and meeting format currently restricts the Group to a maximum of 12 members.
Membership comprises novices and experienced researchers. The more knowledgeable members of the Group are happy to help guide beginners on an ad hoc self-help basis, to initiate them into this truly fascinating subject. Beginners benefit from 1:1 sessions with the Group Leaders, who have experience in publishing books on the subject.
At each meeting members have the opportunity to discuss the progress they have made during the previous month, with the rest of the group providing interactive and helpful suggestions.
Waiting list members may be invited to attend a “taster session” if a regular member cannot attend a monthly meeting for any reason.
