Family History 4
2nd Tuesday 11:00 to 13:00
Woodhatch Community Centre
Have you been inspired and intrigued by the television programme Who Do You Think You Are? Would you too like to be amazed as you unravel the mysteries of your ancestors? You may discover, like actor Danny Dyer that you can trace your tree back to royalty in the 11th century or like singer Boy George that you have Irish Republican links. Or your folks may be more ordinary, but just as fascinating, who have experienced brushes with the law, the scandal of divorce or bigamy or just the frowned-upon stigma of an illegitimate child. Get an insight into their jobs and living conditions, where they went to school and what their town or village was like when they were there.
Join our friendly and fun group to start your own investigation. We have been running for several years and have lots of knowledge that we are willing to share. Our monthly meetings generally comprise of a short talk from one of the members, or an invited speaker, followed by problem-solving sessions where the members may split into smaller groups guided by one of the more experienced members. Occasional visits to places of interest for family history research are sometimes organised.
