Telling Tales – Sources for local & family history

The next meeting of the Society takes place on Thursday 13th November at 7:30 pm in Sedgley Community Centre, Ladies Walk, Sedgley.

The speaker is Christine Buckley who has a passionate interest in family history. She will be talking about the challenges of tracking down local families using sources common to local historians and genealogists.

Christine’s presentation will highlight the need to consult original documentation and even then question evidence and entries. No doubt she will be sharing her research tips and mentioning pitfalls in the quest to help others on the ancestral trail.

The fabric of Sedgley and its inhabitants are closely entwined. Christine’s research has turned up fascinating links and there are stories to tell.

As usual visitors are invited to come along. Individual talks cost £1 or take a full year’s membership – a bargain at £4 with free access to the programme of talks.
