~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Family history is a complex subject and our current members have varying levels of experience. We are very much a self-help group that is focused on sharing knowledge. Our meetings are planned to include workshops on various aspects of family history research, talks by invited speakers who are experts in the field and help with problems members are finding such as “brick walls”. In addition, members can talk about web sites or courses they have found useful.

We hold our meetings at The Maltings on Mondays once per month at 4.15pm. Wifi is available so we can all bring our computers/tablets. A small charge is made for hire of the Maltings.

New members are always welcome, especially complete beginners who wish to make a start on their family tree.
