The Family History Group meets on prearranged days to use the computers at Ely Library to pursue family histories together, with guidance from more experienced members. Ian Forrest is the coordinator. The group size is limited by the number of computers at the library.
The Writing Up Your Family History is a group organised by Susan Morris to help people who have researched their family's history and now need to write it up..
