SOCIAL & FAMILY HISTORY
FAMILY HISTORY HELP
Are you interested in your Family History?
Would you like to find out about some of your ancestors but don’t know where to start?
Would you like some help with your research but are stuck?
Have you got an ancestor you have always been curious about?
Well, our Family and Social History Group can help you.
We have many members who belong to paid sites like Ancestry and Find My Past
who have researched their ancestors over many years and are keen to help others.
You don’t have to come along to the group all the time, though we would love you to of course. So if you want help, just come along to a meeting labelled ‘members support’ meeting on our timetable, which is in the newsletters and on the website. There are always members there ready to help you.
We meet fortnightly normally at Morrisons Community Room on Wednesdays from 2-4pm, Please bring laptops, tablets, iphones etc, to help with your research.

Future slots will include the next members' stories session, the latest on the 1921 census (due out in January, 2022) and orphans/children without parents through time, a member's suggestion. I am still looking for members' suggestions particularly if you will present it as a change from me.
