On-Line Talks (members only)

On the 1st Monday of the month the talk will be with a speaker and the 4th Monday will be a local interest meeting.  The latter will feature various areas of the County, based loosely on the parishes within each Poor Law Union, and will identify useful resources for research in that area such as parish chest records, estate collections, local sources and more!

The programme to the end of 2022 is shown below.  Members can register for each talk by completing the registration form here.
