Family History Group

Mail Address


Do you want to research your own family history? Or perhaps you have a lot of experience in researching and would like to share it with others.

We focus on practical research and helping/encouraging each other to make further progress. Some members are absolute beginners while others share their expertise to help others move forward.

We are now meeting in members' houses so that we can have internet access for our research.

There are now two family history groups.

Family History Group 1 meet at 2.00pm on the third Monday of every month.

Family History Group 2 meet at 10.30am on the first Friday of every month.
