Family Tree

  Each term we hold a mixture of house meetings and meetings at
  Brookside Primary School, High Lane, where we have use of their
  computers and are able to print off material.  We mainly focus on
  internet based material which is useful to those of us whose family
  roots are not local but we also discuss wider social issues and look
  at problems and progress.  Our more experienced members are able
  to work on their own but beginners and those with less experience
  will be given every assistance with using the computers and
  understanding the wealth of information available both on the internet and elsewhere.  For these members we can provide a structured programme looking at basic web sites, census information, parish records
and many other topics.  We also have a library of research guides and access to a fiche reader.  We are not experts in this field, simply enthusiastic amateurs and we are always open to suggestions as to how we can improve the help we provide at all stages.

Studying family history can be a frustrating hobby and progress can be painfully slow, but the excitement when a breakthrough comes is very rewarding.
