The next meeting on Wednesday 24 July will be a visit to London Metropolitan Archives, 40 Northampton Road, Farringdon, London EC1R 0HB. We have limited spaces booked on their tour "Use LMA: Getting Started" to show how to get the best from their resources. The visit is free of charge.
Meet at the Ealing Broadway Station Meeting Room at 9.25 am.
If you have not already notified Sue Peach that you are coming but wish to go please let her know as there are only a few places left.
If you wish to stay on afterwards and do some research you will need a History Card (free) which you can set up online but you will need 2 forms of identity (e.g. passport, utility bill) to collect it. Please visit the LMA website for full details.
The Group was first formed in 2004 with members interested in finding out about their families and their history; there is no waiting list, you can be a complete novice or someone who can help others.
Meetings take several forms as follows: -
1. Workshops where we look at information and see what can be gathered from items as birth / marriage / death certificates, census and parish records, wills and local history.
2. Discuss progress on our research and other members of the group will offer advice and help in gaining information. Members who may not have progressed with their research can often offer help to others.
3. Visits to places of interest where we can help each other in researching records.
If anyone would like the group to discuss a particular area/topic please let us know.
NEW: The Family History Group is able to offer one-to-one introductions to members who wish to start researching their family tree but do not know where to start. These would be arranged at times to suit both the member and instructor. If you wish to take this up, please contact Sue via the blue bird.
Meanwhile We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday 24 July.
