NORTHAMPTON BRANCH

Meetings at Northampton are held at 7:30pm on the third Monday of every month except August. We have a varied program with speakers on family history, social and local history or sources of research. These are followed by a chance to ask questions and to socialise.  You will always find someone willing to offer help and advice if required.

We meet at Weston Favell Parish Hall, on the corner of Wellingborough Road and Booth Lane and there is ample parking on site. The site is fully accessible for disabled visitors.
