For 2019-20 Group 2 consisted of 10 interested people who met in Unit 7 on Friday pm in week2. There was a variety of knowledge and interests for discussion and the mix of knowledge proved beneficial in moving us forward. Initial enthusiasm dropped off with only half of the group attending in the last few months. However the contributions of the whole group assisted in moving most of us forward. Group 1 were also very helpful in assisting us with areas for investigation. A number of new family members were found by the group both historic and current.
Two of the group visited Register House, Edinburgh which proved very beneficial (and cost effective). Three of the group accessed the on line learning which proved valuable in opening opportunities for further investigations.
As to the future a number of the group wish to continue next year. In discussion with the Group 1 leader we plan to continue sharing information and gaining assistance from the full Genealogy members. Potential initiatives will include a joint meeting, creating a starter pack for beginners, building relationships with other U3A Genealogy groups amd family history societies, photography evaluations, demonstrations of web sites etc using the technology available to as in Unit 7.
