Family History 2
Family History 2 began with regular monthly meetings where we discussed each member's individual family history and looked at any documents they already had in their possession. We then made regular visits to The National Archives at Kew (including the Mormon Church's Family History Centre) and the London Metropolitan Archives (LMA) where we have had a great deal of success. Most of us have traced our families back to the early 1800s and the emphasis has now shifted to going further back, using parish records.
Currently, we no longer meet for monthly discussions but continue to visit the research centres on a rotating basis. In addition, several members have also visited other county record offices to trace their ancestors in local parish records.
We could welcome one or two beginners as well, so get in touch with Lesley if you would like to join us.
