We try to have a stall at a few family history fairs each year, with the largest being Who Do You Think You Are, which has moved out of London to Birmingham this year. We are keen to hold more regional meetings or attend regional history fairs, particularly in Manchester, Scotland and South Wales. It can be as small and local as a coffee morning, which you can organise yourself by contacting other members near you (addresses in Members Area on website).
If you are willing to help organise a meeting in your region or help at a fair, please contact the Chair. You don't have to be an expert. It's always a pleasure to meet other members and hear their own stories at first hand.
The events below may be of interest. The Society may not be represented at them.
