This workshop was held on Friday 16 May at the Cottage and was attended by 18 members. The three main resource tools covered were Births, Marriages and Death Records, Census returns and Parish Records. In addition over 25 other avenues of research were highlighted. I hope those 18 members have gone home inspired to break down some brick walls.
Arising from the workshop we are now commencing an English Interest Group for members to get together to discuss their research and problems, and reap the benefit of other members’ experiences. The first meeting of the English Interest Group will be held at the Cottage on Tuesday 24 June from 10 a.m. to 12 noon, and will continue meeting on the 4th Tuesday of each month.
I look forward to seeing you there.
Esther Dean, Life Member
