Family history

Leaders: Eileen Bamford and Margaret Brenchley

We meet every 4th Friday in The Friends Meeting House 10.30-12.30pm,  every 2nd Friday at The Place and every 3rd Friday on zoom.


For all who are interested in family history, from beginners to the more experienced. The programme will combine work on specific topics, in plenary sessions and in small groups, give opportunities to bring individual queries and to organise visits to relevant libraries, record offices etc. This is not so much a course, more a discussion and development group, with shared help and encouragement.
