We had a very successful trip to Who Do You Think You Are? Live show at NEC last Saturday, with 37 people - members and non-members joining our coach!

The next one is to National Archives at Kew on Saturday 3rd June -   Cost: £21 per person. 

Our set-down point at Kew is at the National Archives - but this is only a short distance from Kew Gardens or the London Water and Steam Museum (steaming their rotative engines and their railway that day) or the Mechanical Music Museum at Kew Bridge, for anyone who would prefer visiting these places rather than the Archives!

On Saturday September 9th Cy Cutler and Jenny Pope are organising a trip to Hay on Wye, mecca of "pre -loved" books, with 22 bookshops in the town.  This trip is £15 per person.  Not strictly a Society trip - but one we think would be of great interest with the opportunity to browse (and buy) books on places and people connected to family history research

The final trip in 2017 is on 7 October to the Imperial War Museum in London with galleries and displays closely related to the First World War.  Cost £22.50

For all trips, we pick up in Westbury (6.30am), Devizes (7.00am), Chippenham (7.30am) and Swindon (8.00am).
