Family History Group 1 has been in existence since 2000. It is essentially a mutual help group which encourages its members to research their family history as comprehensively as possible, making the fullest use of the resources currently available - including those to be found on-line. Group meetings provide a forum for wide-ranging discussion in which members are able to report on their latest investigations.
They seek advice on difficulties they have encountered and the best way to tackle them. At some meetings, individual members deliver a brief presentation on a specific aspect of their research. This may be, for example, a particularly colourful ancestor they have unearthed or an unusual trade or livelihood that features in their family’s past.
