Forthcoming Meetings

April 16 2014

Ian Waller - Debts, Debtors & Bankrupts
Room 28 in the quadrangle (as February). Ian Waller will speak on "Debts, Debtors & Bankrupts". Regrettably a surprising number fell into financial difficulties, which may well lead to a determined effort to cover up the family location as they swiftly moved from house to house overnight. Have you lost an ancestor in the census - perhaps they were hiding under a name change, or even had gone abroad to escape debtor's prison. Come & get ideas for how & where to track them down.

May 18

Hartley Wintney Historical Society - Visit to Hartley Wintney Old Church
Valda says: "To celebrate the 40th anniversary of WSFHS I have organised a visit to Hartley Wintney historic old church, with a talk included, for Sunday 18th May to be at the church at 2.30 pm. There is free parking off the High Street (A30) which is 10 - 15 minutes walk along the green by the A323. Limited parking near the church, which is just off the A323." For location look at Genuki Church Database.

May 21

Dr Judy Hill - Emigration From 19C Surrey
Dr Judy Hill will return to speak on "Emigration from 19c Surrey". This original topic will investigate those who were "pushed or pulled" to pastures new, where they went & how to locate them. Dr Hill has done ground breaking research at the Surrey History Centre, & this should be a stimulating angle on researching the conditions under which the decision to emigrate was taken.

June 18

John Owen Smith - All Tanked Up - Canadian Soldiers in our Area - Commemoration of 70th Anniversary of D Day
John Owen Smith will speak on "All Tanked Up" - concerning the Canadian Army located in our general area prior to the D Day landings in June 1944. This will coincide with the 70th anniversary, & discuss where they were located, & the impact on the community. This promises to be a stirring tale in a memorable year for major wartime commemorations.
