Kettering Branch 

Meetings at Kettering are held at 7:30pm on the second Monday of every month except August. Like all the other branches we usually have a speaker on various subjects related to family history and an opportunity to socialise with other members and friends. One of the joys of family history is being able to share our experiences and knowledge with other members, especially beginners and you will always find someone willing to offer help and advice if needed.

We meet at The Cornmarket Hall, 42 London Rd, Kettering NN15 7QA,  and there is ample parking adjacent. The site is fully accessible for disabled visitors.

Branch Committee:  Kathy Haigh;  Andrea Pettingale  &  Ivor Watson
