Family History Day 2016

Preparations are continuing for this event on Saturday, 12th March 2016.

Details can be found on the dedicated page for the Family History Day.


We have vacancies for a number of important roles in the Society.

Fairs organiser - Ann Capon is going to give up this post (not sales) after our Family History Day (12th March 2016). However, she would like someone to shadow her for a while with a view to taking on the post, with help & guidance from her if needed, from anytime soon. Further details of what is involved appeared in the September Journal.

We particularly need an organiser/coordinator - there are people willing to go to fairs on occasions, just no-one to sort out which ones & where etc.

Saturday Research Assistant - Because of family commitments Joy Dixon is no longer able to come in on Saturdays. Ann Bush and June Taylor cannot do every Saturday and, although there is a list of people willing to do occasional duty, it would be helpful if there is at least one member who would be willing to come in most Saturday mornings. Training will be given so that you can assist those who make use of the premises to undertake their own personal research.

Journal Editorial Team - At least one additional person is required to support the work of producing the quarterly Journal. With modern technology this does not need to be confined to the area around Treetops.

Computer Group Coordinator - To arrange subjects and speakers at the monthly Computer Group meetings.

If you are interested in finding out more about any of these roles, please Contact us (during normal office hours) or by email.
