The purpose of the group is to discuss all aspects of family history, to learn from each other’s experiences and to utilise the various resources available for researching one’s ancestry. We meet in the Matlock Local Studies Library, which has a wealth of information available as well as internet access to the many on-line genealogical databases, and part of each meeting is usually led by one of our members with particular experience in using one of the resources available in the Library. Each meeting will also spend some time discussing a particular topic.
Each member is encouraged to bring details of some unusual fact that they have discovered to each meeting.
The Family History Group meets in the Derbyshire Records Office, Matlock, on the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 2.00pm to 4.00pm.
There is usually no charge to attend meetings
Potential new members should contact the coordinator Trevor Boam, who can be contacted by email, or by telephone on 01629 55300.
