February 18Derek Morris - Londonís Sailortown in the early 19C
2pm. Derek Morris will speak on ďLondonís Sailortown in the early 19CĒ. Ships were built, equipped & furnished in vast numbers, for war & for world wide trade. East of the Tower many types of occupations were carried out, & it was quite unlike the rest of the capital. Colourful characters abounded from around the globe, & a good living could be made. This fascinating talk will expand your impressions of the old East London, & those who spent their lives neat the Thames river bank.
March 15Jane Lewis - Tracing your Irish Ancestors
Jane Lewis of the Surrey History Centre will return to speak on "Tracing your Irish Ancestors". This will expand & update the many sources, especially those now online. The possibilities of progress on Irish research has never been better. There will also be information on the myths & problems encountered - giving hope if you have despaired of making headway.
April 19David Rose - The Wreck of the Lilly Bell II
David Rose will speak on "The Wreck of the Lilly Bell II". This was a US bomber which crashed in 1944 near Jacob's Well, SW Surrey, near Guildford. The talk will recount the lives of the four young airmen who were killed, & provide detail regarding the actual event & the research that built up the background to this tragic event. A memorial now stands near the crash site. This talk with a difference should prove an absorbing tale.
May 17Kathy Chater - London Cemetaries & Burial Grounds
Kathy Chater will speak on "London Cemetaries & Burial Grounds". This is always a challenging area of research, given how many possible sites there are in the capital, many of which no longer exist. Kathy will give a broad overview, & an update on the new sources available to research. Finding a grave stone can open up new possibilities, providing names, dates & relationships not available elsewhere.
