The aim of the group is to get people started with their family research and by sharing information find good ways to record family history and examine new sources of information. The groups also occasionally join together on outings or to hear visiting speakers.

The group normally meet at the Methodist Hall in Waverley Street on the second Wednesday of the month plus some small support meetings in evenings to assist beginners to reach speed for the normal meetings.

It has been decided to have a 3 month break in the Summer Months (July, August & September) when the normal meetings would be replaced by trips out to records offices, museums, conferences, Family History Fairs, libraries etc.

A most valuable aspect of the group is the sharing of the wealth and variety of information and experience members have gleaned in their individual research.

Future Meetings:

May 2019: Guest Speaker who has transcribed & published some local parishes records on his experiences & should be able to assist the group in their Parish Searches.

June 2019: “Military Records” Overview of Early, WW1 & WW2 military records – what they contain & where to find them.

July 2019: Visit to the “Black Country Museum” – experience historic trades & life.

August 2019: Visit to the National Archives at Kew

September 21st 2019: U3A Genealogy Conference at Buxton. (Some of the Group are planning overnight stays to make a weekend away others are planning just for the day).

October 2019 ( Back to normal meetings) Proposed – “Trades & Occupations” concentrating on the families of the group members.
