Forthcoming Meetings

November 19 2014

Kathy 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.

January 21 2015

Tony Kelly - Monumental Inscriptions - Tracking them down
Tony Kelly, our Monumental Inscriptions Co-ordinator, will present the latest information on the WSFHS project, which is now on line. 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.

February 21

Vivien Bennett - Valiant VADs -The Red Cross Project
Saturday 21st February at 2:00 pm in the quad. Vivienne Bennett will speak on "Red Cross Records - Valiant VADs". A significant project is under way to transcribe details of women serving in this wartime capacity. Could your ancestor be one of the many wartime heroines? This will be a first time opportunity to learn about this little known source.

March 18

Louise Taylor - Post Office Archives - and WWI deliveries
March 18 at 7.30 pm. Louise Todd Will speak on "Post Office Archives". Vast numbers have been Post office employees, & they hold very extensive details - including the Post Office Directories, which are becoming increasingly rare if you wish to use the books rather than online. She will include background in the work of the Post Office at wartime - from home front to battlefield with a very swift service.
