Genealogy 2

While it is common for people to use the terms 'genealogy' and 'family history' interchangeably, they actually have a subtle but different meaning. Genealogy, the study of ancestry and descent, refers more to the actual search for ancestors, while family history, the narrative of the events in your ancestors' lives, denotes the telling of your family's story. Family history is genealogy come alive.

This is a group of people with a little experience who are interested in researching their ancestry and family history in a small group setting. We use a variety of historical records to find out more about our ancestors and the way they lived.

We use records of births, marriages and deaths, together with census returns and many other sources to discover who our ancestors are. Using a variety of historical resources: timelines, social histories, newspaper accounts, biographies, etc we discover the circumstances of their lives - what they did for a living, how they spent their leisure time and their position in the town or community, the types of food they ate, the clothes they wore and much more.

Genealogy can, and should be, fun as well as serious research, and we try to embrace this philosophy in our group meetings. Group members try to help each other as well as researching their own family.

"Most research is done using the internet. All potential group members need to have basic Computer skills in order to take a full part in group sessions and to continue their own family research".

This group meets on the 2nd Monday of each month from 2.00-4.00pm

This Group is now full.
