The aim of the group is to help members with their hobby of researching their family history. We have a wide experience within the group and sharing of this experience is both a rewarding and enjoyable aspect of the group.
At our meetings we have talks on a variety of genealogical topics. These typically include sources of information, record keeping, personal experiences, and use of the Internet to aid genealogical research. We also usually have a discussion time which might share particular successes or suggest approaches to solving difficulties. Occasional visits are made to places such as the Berkshire Record Office, Mormon Family History Centre, Newspaper library in North London, and the National Archives at Kew. These visits often open up a new avenue of research for our members.
We have a membership of about thirty and meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month. Meetings are held on-line using Zoom with invitations sent out by email. This will continue for the remainder of 2021.
