Hadlow WI

Thought for the Month

 

In life -

it's not where you go,

it's who you travel with.

 

RECORD OF OUR MEETING HELD ON TUESDAY, 20th JUNE 2017

Our president welcomed 27 members, 1 visitor, George Wildridge, our speaker, and his wife to the meeting . The subject of out talk this evening was about how to research and start your Family Tree. George took us through his own experience of researching his family tree and in that way, informed us how to approach this interesting subject. He gave us a few pointers on which websites were best to use and how birth and marriage certificates were very useful in confirming who your ancestors are and interestingly, what they did for a living, as occupations are listed on them too.
