our virtual meeting on 30th May

Thank you for joining us at our last virtual meeting on 30th May. We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new visitors. We hope you will join us again.

We also were shown ways of using the search boxes on the Family Search website which would give us better results


We then discussed the merits and pitfalls of using information on other member’s trees on Ancestry.co.uk. Always ensure you check the information you have found yourself to verify it is correct.

Our next meeting is on Saturday 27th June. This will include our AGM followed by our research meeting. If there are any points you would particularly like us to cover, please cfhg.sol.birm@gmail.com

We hope you can join us on the 27th June.
