NORTHAMPTON BRANCH

Meetings at Northampton are held at 7:30pm on the third Monday of every month, except August and December. 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, where there is ample parking on site. The site is also fully accessible for disabled visitors. The best postcode to use for your SatNav is NN3 3EP and not the one on the Google map below. The location is at What3words person.good.appear.
