Family History & Genealogy

Meeting: 4th Wednesday of each month 2-4pm.
Venue: Northumbria Hall, St. Cuthbert's Church Centre, Lytham Road, Preston.
Joint group leaders: Malcolm Woods (Tel.01772 864665). Andy Luscombe (Tel.01772 861062).

Have you ever watched “Who Do You Think You Are?” or similar programmes on TV and wondered about your own family history? If so, why not do something about it.

In the U3A Family History group, we don’t have an army of researchers at our call but we have friendly and willing “experts” and likeminded devotees who are always happy to share their experiences, provide advice and “do’s and don’ts” to help you in your research - and possibly break through the “brick walls” that we all come up against. We have a wide range of experience in the group, including members who are just starting their family history research. Our meetings includes regular “Can anybody help?” sessions, discussions on topics requested by group members, outside speakers, and visits to local museums, archives and information centres.

We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month 2pm-4pm in Northumbria Hall at St. Cuthbert’s. Why not come and join us, you will be most welcome. For further details contact Malcolm or Andy - contact numbers are at top of page.

Next meeting: 22 January 2020

Topic: Family History Quiz. A light-hearted session to start the new year, a bit of fun to get the brain cells working again and with the chance of learning something. It would be great to get as many members as possible for this to make it lively and entertaining and give a reasonable number of teams. We’ll split the group into teams, as we did last year, to be decided on the day. Questions will be projected onto the large screen so it should be straightforward for everyone to follow. Please make sure you have a pen/pencil and some scrap paper might be useful, although paper for your answers will be provided.

Hopefully this will be an interesting fun session for everyone ..... and there will be prizes!!
