The Group decides the subject to be discussed each month, and members take it in turn to lead our discussions. We also look into the life of our ancestors by discussing their work and living conditions, health and diets.
We meet on the first Monday of each month except when that falls on a Bank Holiday, when we meet on the second Monday.
Our purpose is to facilitate research into the family history of our members and to provide a forum for the exchange of information especially relating to the identification of new search engines.
Of particular benefit is the occasional meeting devoted to "brick walls" where members using their combined wisdom attempt to resolve a specific problem.
In addition to the normal meetings, we arrange:
- Visits to record offices
- Combined meetings with the other genealogy groups with an outside speaker
