Family History

The Family History Group meets on the second Thursday of each month from 2 - 4 p.m. at The Family History Centre, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Wetherby Road, HG2 7SA (opposite Lancaster Park Road).

We are a group of friendly, passionate amateur family historians, not just interested in seeing how far back we can go, or how many names can be found in a family tree, but in fleshing out details about the life of our ancestors. Not all members have access to a computer or the internet at home, and some are just starting out, so there are varying levels of experience and expertise.

At our meetings, there is usually a talk or discussion led by one of the members or a guest speaker, followed by refreshments. Sometimes meetings include presentations using a computer, but they could also involve “brain storming” sessions on a theme, facilitated by a member. In sharing discoveries about ancestors living all over the world, we gain new ideas about how to further develop our own research.

The Family History Centre has access to their Family History Centre Portal page which gives free access, in the Centre, to family history software and websites. Help in using these facilities and many other resources, together with advice on the next step to make is readily available.

We have a few spaces in our Family History group so please contact one of the leaders prior to coming along for the first time. There is plenty of free parking available in the Church grounds and minimal cost involved in belonging to the group.

For further details contact the group leaders:-

The Group Leaders are Wendy Tel: 07864937118 and Carole Tel: 07759372521, Email: Family History
