Family History Meetings

Have you ever wondered who your Ancestors are?

Whether your ancestors lived in Nottinghamshire or lived further afield, the opportunities to find out more, via the library, the County Record Office or the internet are becoming easier every day.

The recently released 1939 Register that was compiled at the outbreak of W.W.11 on 29th September, 1939, is proving to be a very useful addition to the documents available for tracing our more recent ancestors. It records the actual date of birth and occupation of all adult members of the household, it was edited until fairly recently and shows the married name of ladies married after this date.

Our group has varied levels of experience so even if you are a complete beginner, we will be pleased to assist you to find your roots. Some of our members prefer to construct their family tree using pen and paper; others use a family history programme on the computer. Either way it can become very addictive.

Why not come and join us to find out more about your forebears.

We meet the 4th Tuesday of every month from 10.00 to 12.00 (apart from August and December) at the STANHOPE CENTRE, BRIDGE STREET METHODIST CHURCH
