January 20 2024Informal Meeting - Insights from the Censuses
Attendees will chat about what they have found about their ancestors in the censuses. Have they revealed any surprises, helped link families, located lost relatives. What interesting things have appeared from the recent 1921 English or Scottish censuses?
February 17Viv Bennet - The Girl behind the Man behind the Gun – the WAAC/QMAAC 1917-1919
March 16Jane Lewis - Maps for Family Historians
Jane Lewis of Surrey History Centre will describe how maps are an important but often overlooked resource for family historians. This talk explores how maps can enhance our understanding of a local area and also shed light on the places where our ancestors lived their daily lives. It will show what can be found in local libraries and record offices and also what is available online. It will also explore some practical aspects of using different sources alongside maps to explore where and how our ancestors lived and hopefully help us to walk in their footsteps.
April 17David Rose - History of Picture Postcards
David Rose is a well-known local history writer and public speaker. He has written and co-written more than a dozen local history books focusing on Guildford and the surrounding area.
He has been interested in history for as long as he can remember and collects all kinds of things related to what he calls ‘history of living memory’. His collection includes old photographs, picture postcards, books, maps, guide books, plus a wide range of old bottles, bygones and yesteryear’s advertising.
This talk tells the story of the humble postcard, and uses cards from the Guildford area to tell the story.
May 15Informal - Astounding Discoveries?
The group will chat about discoveries (astounding or more mundane!) that they have made in recent years. Have you broken down any 'Brick Walls'?
