Tuesday 17th August - details to be confirmed.
Recent meeting - Tuesday 15th June - Helen Baggott - "Posted in the Past". Freelance editor and writer Helen revealed the true stories behind postcards sent more than a hundred years ago. Using a genealogist's 'toolbox', she has uncovered a wealth of fascinating stories - including a young servant from Bath and the man who helped keep the doors to Great Ormond Street Hospital open for more than 30 years.
Recent meeting: Tuesday 18th May - Terry Bracher - "Wiltshire Black History". Terry is well known to many local and family historians as the Heritage Services Manager at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham. His talk covered the history of the early Black presence in Wiltshire and the county’s interaction with Africa, Asia and the Caribbean, from Tudor times to WW2.
