Genealogy (Family history)

The genealogy group meets on the last Monday of the month from 2pm to 4pm in the convener's home. Although it is a relatively new group it is already very popular and it is not possible at the moment to take new members. There is a waiting list, so please contact the convener if you are interested.

Below are example of the sort of photograph which many families have.
