Virtual Branch meetings 

Sons of the Soil: researching our agricultural labouring ancestors - Monday 25th April at 7.30pm
Our next meeting will take place on Monday 25th April at 7.30pm (admission from the waiting room will take place from 7pm), with David Church being the host for the evening. The speaker will be Dr Janet Few on the theme of agricultural labourers with reference to Wiltshire.
At the end of the meeting, we will split into breakout rooms to discuss this occupation in connection with our own ancestors.
For Society members across the time zones, Dr Few has agreed for us to broadcast her recorded talk at alternative times (early morning and early afternoon UK time) before deleting the recording.

Memories of Wiltshire Facebook site - Friday July 15th at 7.30pm),
James Archard will take us around the Memories of Wiltshire Facebook site, as previously mentioned, highlighting historic pictures of places around the county that are important to our members’ personal heritage.

Future Meetings
Later in the year we aim to have a purely breakout room get-together of small groups whose ancestors come from a common part of the County.

We are always interested in hearing from our virtual branch members as to the themes they would like us to feature during our branch meetings.
