Genealogy Group

Monday 2pm to 4pm at The Hive
Please contact Karin Fancett

We are planning to set up a Genealogy Group with a maximum of 15 people of various
levels of experience who will get together to help each other to learn more about different
aspects of family history and to work on their family trees. The group will meet fortnightly on
Monday afternoons (2 to 4pm) at the Hive.
The first hour will be in one of the meeting rooms (with audio-visual, computer and internet
facilities available) where two people per session can each introduce a topic for about 10 or
15 minutes followed by a similar amount of time for group discussion on the topic. Don’t
worry if you can’t instantly think of anything to talk about – the topic could be a brickwall you
have hit, resources available in the county or country where some of your ancestors
originated, an occupation followed by one of your relatives, a book or website you have
found particularly useful in your investigations, etc. etc., and I will send out a list of some
other ideas before the group starts. Or if you want to introduce a bigger topic and talk for half
an hour or so that would be fine too, but we are suggesting two topics per session both for
variety and so that it seems less daunting.
For the second hour we will work in the main body of the library, either individually or ideally
in pairs or small groups so that we can help each other out with some of our genealogy
problems. Two of the main online genealogy sites, Ancestry Library Edition and FindMyPast,
are available to use for free on the Hive’s computers or you could bring your own laptop to
sign into these sites or to use any other sites to which you subscribe.
