The Family History Group meets on the last Tuesday of each month at the Old Deanery, Ripon, at 2.00pm. We ask for an annual subscription of £10 to pay for speakers and you are expected to buy refreshments (usually tea or coffee at £2.50 per cup.)
We have found that we have ancestors in many parts of the UK and some overseas links. In fact, very few people have local ancestors more than one generation back so don't let a lack of Ripon connections stop you joining us. At present the meetings take the form of discussions, in which we help each other to solve problems, find new resources etc. and we include occasional speakers. We are also keen to organise separate beginners’ meetings for members who are new to Family History.
The room offers a Wi-Fi connection and a computer and projector have usually been available.
New members are very welcome but remember, you should be a U3A member first.
