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.

Arandora Star Film

On Friday, June 15, 2018
Posted on behalf of Peter Capella (

Anna Chiappa has produced a film on the Arandora Star. It’s about 45 minutes long and includes footage of the recovery not seen before. It is really excellent.

We have secured a provisional date, Friday 15th June at Casa San Vincenzo Pallotti St Peter’s Italian Church to show the film, have a pasta and a glass of wine @ £7.00 per head. Times to be confirmed.

If we have enough support we will make it happen.

Let Peter Capella know if you want to come asap so that he can confirm the booking.
