West London Group

 Intoduction

 

 

 

We are a friendly group that meets three times a year, to provide an opportunity for local people with Suffolk ancestral interests to get together, do some research and exchange experiences.

We also have an opportunity to help represent the society at the local family history fairs held at Woking (pictured), Bracknell and Central London.

 

 

Meetings

The West of London Group meetings are held on Saturdays, 2-5pm, at:

          Bishopshalt School
          Royal Lane
          Hillingdon
          UB8 3RF
 

All members and their guests are welcome, also anyone who is not yet a member but would like to consider joining.

Various books, and a good selection of Suffolk parish registers, the IGI, and other research material on CD and microfiche is available.

 

 

You are welcome to bring your own laptop to save possibly waiting to use ours.

Our speakers subjects cover a wide range of interesting interests.

The school entrance is located on Royal Lane a short distance from Hillingdon Hospital to the south, and the A4020 from Uxbridge to the north. When through the gate, follow the path round to the left, past a 1960s building, to a Victorian building with a bay window at the far end where there is plenty of free parking. Our meetings are held in the ground floor bay window room - along the corridor on the right.

"My Ancestor Came from Suffolk"

Posted by J Horton on Wed, 4th Jan 2017

AT THE SOCIETY OF GENEALOGISTS

On Saturday 9th September 10.30am - 1pm the SoG, the session will cover how to find and use resources from the well-known to hidden gems to trace your Suffolk ancestry. Discover what is available locally, nationally and online, including case studies.

A half-day course with Gill Blanchard. Cost £20, or (£16 for SoG members). Afterwards, non members can research the library for £5 for 2 hrs or £10 for 4 hrs. The SoG holds a wealth of Suffolk material. You can check their holdings on  www.sog.org.uk then clicking "search records".

On Wed 19 April noon-1pm they are offering a free session on getting the most from the society, followed by a further free session 2pm-3pm on SoG data on-line. Both must be pre-booked. These could help you decide if joing could help your research.

The Society is located at 14, Charterhouse Buildings, Goswell Rd, London EC1M 7BA. Barbican Station (Circle, Hammersmith & City, &  Metropolitan) is 10 mins walk, turn left out of station;  and Old St station (Northern Line) exit 3 about 15 mins walk, or cross the road and get bus 55 or 243 to Clerkenwell Rd. Buses 4, 56, 153 and 505 also stop nearby.
