Worcester

Genealogy Group

Monday 2pm to 3.30 pm at The Hive
Please contact Karin Fancett

We are a friendly group of people with various levels of genealogy experience who get together to help each other to learn more about different aspects of family history and to work on their family trees and on our shared project on Edgar Street, Worcester. The group meets fortnightly on Monday afternoons in one of the Hive’s meeting rooms, and although the room is booked from 2 to 3.30pm members may well stay later in the Hive to continue their investigations or discussions informally.

The meeting room has audio-visual, wifi and internet facilities available, though it is helpful if members can bring along their own laptop or tablet if possible. We aim to have a mixture of talks and presentations by group members, and occasionally outside speakers, plus working on family trees using either the resources available on the archives floor of the Hive or via online sites. If you have your own Ancestry or FindMyPast subscription you should be able to sign in to these sites via wifi, or if not you could use the library’s subscription.

As a number of group members do not have Worcestershire ancestors in their trees we decided to pick a Worcester street to study so that people could investigate the families living there over the years. This gives us practice at using county archive and other local records, experience that will be helpful if we visit other archives for our own family research. We chose Edgar Street because it has a long and potentially interesting history and are already finding some fascinating families and stories.

We have also set up a groups.io discussion group where members can privately talk about topics of interest between meetings and notes from our meetings will appear there or on the right hand side of this page. You will need the usual Worcester u3a password and username to sign in to see them via this page.
