U3A Family History

An excellent and very busy day.7 members and the Leader turned out, so we had to overspill into the Lounge.
We have a new member: Maureen Broad: welcome Maureen! She wished to know how we operated, and outlined her current search programme. It will involve a certain amount of visiting, as there is much she needs from Parish Records.
She and John H discussed this with particular reference to Irish records.She also brought a quantity of CD's with invaluable records amd directories. These will be added to the Library and, when they have been catalogued the Library index will be re-issued to members.
The Library is free to members to borrow from at any time. Just say the word!
Peter needed to work on his tree.
Audrey helped Bridget with Ancestry, and John D helped Eileen with her iPad version of Ancestry. The latter has restricted editing features, and will not easily allow her to eliminate duplicate names. We need to do more work here.
Rosemary is still working up her Tree, but worked for a while with Eileen.
In fact, it seem at one time as if everyone was helping everybody else: just as it should be!
