January 20 2018Andy Robertshaw - War Walks around WW1 Battlefield Sites
Andy Robertshaw will speak on "War Walks around WW1 Battlefield Sites" Andy has been Head of the Royal Logistics Corps Museum in Deepcut, & is one of the country's leading authorities. He is now a regular Walks leader, as described in "Family Tree" magazine. A special opportunity to hear from the man with experience of these fascinating visits. Highly recommended.
February 17Alan Turton - The Social History of the Civil War Soldier
This 17C war raged across the country, & quite probably involved some of our ancestors. How did they cope? A new look at an important topic.
March 17Derek Morris - Sun Insurance Records & Lloyd's Shipping Archive
Derek Morris makes a welcome return to speak on "Sun Insurance Records & Lloyd's Shipping Archive". These are less known & used sources, but are now becoming accessible on line. They can open up valuable background information on a surprisingly wide section of the population. The focus will be on London, but other area will be covered.
April 18Jane Lewis - Tracing Welsh Ancestry
Jane Lewis from Surrey History Centre will speak on "Land of our Fathers - Researching Welsh Ancestry". This quest may need a fresh approach. The frequency of a relatively limited range of surnames presents potential confusion - so expert guidance is valuable. Even if you think you have no Welsh connections come & hear Jane's talk - after many years research I have found to my surprise this topic is of special relevance to me!
May 16- Brookwood Cemetery - Further Explored Guided Walk
Following last year's successful walk we will again meet at the car park in Cemetery Pales for a guided walk, this time in a different section, led by a a member of The Friends of Brookwood Cemetery. As last year please wear sturdy footwear, as some paths are uneven, as we mingle with the graves of the famous, notorious, quirky & brave. Cost will be £5 to the Brookwood Friends.
June 20Ian Waller - Beyond the Internet
Ian Waller will speak on "Beyond the Internet". It's important to appreciate the present limitations of online research, & consider spending time in visiting an archive or specialist library - some of which are having to limit their access hours due to lack of finances & visitors. Ian is a member of AGRA, & will provide with useful tips for our research.
