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.
a drink, snack or lunch and chat.
Next Meeting: Friday, 25 October 2019 from 10 am
Venue: The Kings Arms, 55 The Grove, Ealing, London W5 5DX
Topic: "A Rogue, Cad and a Bounder"
We will look at family history resources online and offline using a laptop and viewing various sites. Please prepare a list of the sites you use as well as any offline resources that we can add to the list. Please also remember to have your user IDs and passwords on you so we can show these to other group members . Do bring a few family details that you are researching to demonstrate the facilities on the various sites.
