October 15 2014Judy Davies - The Bosun's Story
The Bosun's Story. This is the tale of RN volunteers & conscripts in the tumultuous world of the Georgian Navy. How did seafarers survive, & what records are available for further research? Even if you don't know of RN ancestry, this should be a stirring saga.
November 19Kathy Chater - Delinquents & those who tried to reform them
Kathy Chater will return with her latest talk, on "Delinquents & those who tried to reform them". What could be done for those many youngsters who fell foul of the law, in times of much hardship, especially in urban area? The options for a fresh start may have seemed remote, but public spirited people made great efforts to prevent urchins falling into habitual criminal lifestyles. Come & learn of the opportunities being created for them.

Discussion will include the best ways to transcribe, & what additional detail can be included on these inscriptions - useful for all, even if you don't believe your ancestors final resting place was in Surrey. There could be surprises in store.
