November 21Informal 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 2019Jane 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 16Alan 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 16Kathy 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.
