Monday 2pm to 4pm at The Hive or via Zoom
Please contact Karin Fancett
We are a 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. The group meets fortnightly on Monday afternoons (2 to 4pm). In 2021/22 we plan to alternate meetings in person in one of the meeting rooms in The Hive and online via Zoom but will remain flexible should Covid conditions necessitate a change.
We use one of the Hive's meeting rooms (with audio-visual, computer and internet facilities available) and usually spend the first hour or so discussing a particular topic of interest to members. Sometimes a member will talk for a while on a topic followed by general discussion, while at other meetings we will ask all members to come prepared to say a bit on the topic in question.
In the second hour we work together in a more practical way, seeing if we can help each other out with some of our genealogy problems/brick walls. Via the internet we have access to the library's subscriptions to Ancestry Library Edition and FindMyPast, and people can also use these sites via their own laptops or tablets whilst in the library.
Notes from our meetings will appear on the right hand side of this page. You will need the usual Worcester U3A password and username to sign in to see them.
