continue in the Spring with the Autumn format; two
house meetings, four or five meetings in the computer room at Brookside
Primary School, High Lane and possibly a trip out to a research
facility. We will still mainly be focusing on internet based
research which is useful to those whose families are not local.
Our meetings follow a structured programme to lead you through the
wealth of information available in various forms. Topics vary
from ‘Getting started’ to ‘Storing
producing family trees’. We look at census
records, military records and many more. Studying family
history can be a frustrating hobby at times but
the excitement when a breakthrough comes is very rewarding.
We will welcome both returning and new members and are always open to
suggestions to improve the help we provide at all stages.
The cost of room hire has increased significantly but, given sufficient
numbers we are hoping to keep our charges at £14 for the
term. For this you will get the use of a computer, the
print information (small charge), internet access, the use of a fiche
reader and help from us.
