LECTURES and TALKS2021 Programme

'The Society was founded in 1981, with a membership of over 1,500 people worldwide. We aim to provide contacts between members by regular meetings and through the quarterly Journal published in January, April, July and October. Members not only research their ancestors by name but, by using all available information, seek to build up a complete picture of the people in the setting in which they lived. As the Society consists of a friendly mixture of complete beginners and experienced family historians there is every opportunity for beginners to receive encouragement in their researches ... Meetings are held at six centres around the county. These meetings are open to all: if you live in the area or are just visiting why not pop in and discuss any family history related problems or just enjoy the evening?'
