Forthcoming Meetings

October 17 2018

Tony Painter - The History and Fascination of Place Names
Tony Painter will return to speak on 'The History and Fascination of Place Names'. This will include some localones and how they originated. Check with Valda in advance if you have a specific query.

November 21

Informal Meeting - Family History - Past, Present and Future
'Family History - Past, Present and Future'. So much has changed since many of us began our researches so this is your chance to share the "Good Old Days" - or were they? What is available now, and what you are focussing on? What might there be in the future, and what should we be investigating? Here is your chance to contribute, and hopefully be inspired with what's ahead.

January 19 2019

Jane Fox - Don't Believe Everything You're Told
Saturday 2 pm. Jane Fox will warn us 'Don't Believe Everything You're Told'. Collecting the facts we need to research can at times mean in our enthusiasm we take them at face value. Learn to be "Research Aware" & avoid common traps for the unwary.

February 16

Alan Turton - The Life of the 18C British Redcoat Soldie
Saturday 2 pm. Alan Turton will make a welcome return visit to speak on 'The Life of the 18C British Redcoat Soldier'. Many men spent part of their life back then under arms. How did they survive, what dangers did they face, & where might they have been posted? Another fascinating tale in store for a winter's afternoon.

March 16

Kathy Chater - Tracing Huguenot Ancestry
Saturday 2pm. Kathy Chater will guide us through 'Tracing Huguenot Ancestry'. Many folk have these links, which arose through circumstances caused by the 17/18c religious persecutions in France. This led many to flee their home country, to worship elsewhere. England received thousands, & in London they set up their own churches. Could you have Huguenot ancestry? Come & learn the many sources available to search.

April 17

Jane Lewis - Learn to Love Your 19C Ag Labs
Jane Lewis of Surrey History Centre will return to speak on 'Learn to Love Your 19C Ag Labs'. It can be daunting attempting to research such a background. Jane will present a wide range of sources to follow up for more details to bring these folk to life.

May 15

Peter Christian - Making the Most Of On Line Census Records
Peter Christian will speak on 'Making the Most Of On Line Census Records'. These are a vital part of our research , but do you know how best to meet the challenges they throw up? Come & get fresh ideas from an expert.

June 19

Walk - Brookwood Cemetery Walk
7 pm. We return to spend another summer's eve at Brookwood Cemetery guided around new grounds & hearing of sad, strange & bizarre tales amidst the beautiful wooded grounds , by members of the Brookwood Cemetery Society. Cost 5 paid on the night.
The Cemetery meeting point is in the main parking lot off Cemetery Pales.
