Family History And Genealogy
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday from 10.00-12.00.
Venue: Malvern Baptist Church, Abbey Road, Malvern WR14 3HG.
(Inactive during: July,August).
The group includes members with a wide experience of researching family history ranging from 30 or more years through to the complete beginner. All personal research is undertaken outside of meetings with members using methods most appropriate to their circumstances and working at their own pace; many now make use of resources available by computer in addition to referring to original records.
Our aim is to enable members to compile an accurate record of their family history using all available resources including the knowledge and expertise of more experienced members. No set course is followed but individual assistance is available to new comers if required and all members are encouraged to bring any problems or notable successes they may encounter, for discussion within the group.
The programme includes talks on specific areas of research or of special interest, exercises – either simulation or quiz format – to review and practice knowledge and techniques, presentations based on a group project involving all members. It is hoped that all topics will stimulate discussion between members which will continue after a brief coffee break!
Due to other hall commitments it is occasionally necessary to have a 3 week gap so please check with the programme. There are 25 – 30 members present at a typical meeting.
