Forthcoming Meetings

June 19 2019

Walk - Brookwood Cemetery Walk
7 pm. This year we are walking round the military part of Brookwood. We have one of their volunteers. Meet in front of the Canadian building just inside the cemetery at the end of the avenue. Car parking will be in front of the Canadian building. Signposted "Brookwood Military Cemetery and Memorials" on Dawney Hill. Various maps can be found: here
Postcode: GU24 0JB
See also their web site. In particular if you click on the google symbol on their map you will get a full screen version with the streetview little man.
My apologies for the earlier misinformation.

Informal Meeting - My Most Interesting Ancestor
While researching our predecessors, we often find someone who has done something unexpected, had an unusual job, experienced unusual relationships, or just lived a life that would not happen today. We would all love to hear about them - please bring a contribution that you can tell people about (or that someone can read for you), pictures and memorabilia welcome.

October 16

Ian Currie - Droughts, Deluges and Dust Devils
Ian is a weatherman, broadcaster and author and his talk will take you through several centuries of weather with particular reference to SE England. Find out when there were 4 metre high snowdrifts in Oxford Street, London or hailstones bigger than cricket balls in Sussex, when the Straits of Dover were blocked with ice, the sea froze to the horizon off the north Kent coast and people traversed Southampton Water and a tornado ripped through Guildford. The Weather never ceases to astound and amaze both ourselves and our ancestors.

November 20

Philip Gorton - Researching House History
Philip's business is to discover the history behind people's houses, and he will share how to uncover the story of your house and the people who lived there, and which resources and records can be used.
