Having worked on local history my mother told me I might be a descendant of the founder of the local Priory. In the mid 1970s an aunt gave me family trees going back six or so generations on my mother’s side. I wanted to confirm and try to extend these trees to confirm my connections. I am still trying!

Genealogy is a fascinating and fast-growing interest and this group is ideal for
at all levels of knowledge and expertise, from complete beginners to experts.
If you are a beginner we will show you how to start your research, advise you about
the many potential sources of information and guide you through each stage.
If you have already made a start we will help you continue your family history and
make real progress. If you are an expert then please come along and share your findings
and skills, join in our discussions of problems and help us to find solutions and
new information. We include the effective use of the internet but use of a computer
is not essential.
