Convenor: Frances Healey, 0161 790 7287 – email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Group Leader: Sylvia Young, 0161 790 9594 – email: email@example.com
Venue and Time/Date: This group will meet at Eccles Library, the second Wednesday of each month from 10.15 – 12.15.
This group is suitable for all levels from beginners to the more experienced. The aim of the group is to help each other to research into their ancestry, build their family tree and pass on their experiences and stories.
Meetings will provide an opportunity to discuss how to overcome problems, red herrings and brick walls we all come across. Please note this is not a taught course, we will learn from the shared experiences and expertise of our members. Our meetings aim to have a specific subject during the first half, followed by an informal session helping members with their own family trees and interests.
