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.

DNA Session - Joan Horton + members.

Joan will be giving a presentation on Ancestry DNA, and invites members who have used genealogical DNA testing to join in.  We will be covering how to make sense of the results,  using match lists, and personal experience in how the DNA tests have helped - or not - in one's personal research.   Please bring any print-outs etc you think will be of interest.

Meeting 11 May 2019

"The Importance of Family Photography" Speaker Clair Gardner.

We find those old photos from grandma's attic fascinating - but too often are frustratingly anonymous, and can be sadly faded and tatty.  Hours of work are needed to try and make sense of them, and too often they never reveal their secrets.

Clarie will help us to be better ancestors, and leave a photographic legacy that will become a valued archive for our future descandants.

Everyone is welcome to join us, and at the same time do some research, talk to others and have a cup of tea.
