Family and Social History
In addition to assisting members with research into their own family history the group operates as a discussion group for family history and social history, as it relates to family history research. Discussions cover topics such as Occupations and Salaries, Wars, Travel, Fashions, Orphanages and Workhouses and many more, in addition to hearing members’ family history stories.
We meet monthly (except for August and December) in the Library, usually on a Monday afternoon. We currently have 14 registered members and meetings are usually attended by about 12 members. We think we are going along nicely and would welcome anyone else interested in joining us. Come along to a meeting to see what we have to offer or what you have to offer the group. Or send a message to Peter.
