Family History - Next Zoom Meeting

Wed 17th March, 2 pm: Family History Discussion,

‘Dating photographs of people’

The Family History Discussion group continues to meet monthly on the third Wednesday in the month at 2pm via Zoom.

The January meeting shared stories of the “Migration of our ancestors in the UK”. Several members talked about people travelling the length and breadth of the country in search of work or for other reasons at times when they were individually in difficult circumstances and when travel was very difficult compared to now (lockdown excepted).

Our last meeting on February 17th was all about “How we document and present our family history to a wider audience.” Members presented examples of how they had successfully tackled this issue, using a variety of formats both printed and webbased providing
inspiration to be creative in presenting the results of our research.

Our next meeting on
March 17th is entitled "Dating photographs of people" and promises to be an enlightening meeting with some expert input. If you would like to join in a meeting please contact Brian Waters on FamilyHistory@charnwoodu3a.org.uk
