Your committee has agreed to the formation of a Family History Group.
We will be starting from the beginning ie for those with little or no knowledge of how to start and where to look.  It probably wouldn’t suit people who have been researching their family history for several years – they might lose interest very quickly having to go at the pace of beginners.
The Group will meet at the Dracaena Centre, Dracaena Avenue, Falmouth.  For those wishing to travel by bus the U1, U2 and other local services stop outside the drive to the Centre.  There is limited car parking at the Centre, however, there are no parking restrictions on Dracaena Avenue.
The Group will meet fortnightly in ‘term times’ for 2 hour sessions commencing on Tuesday 5 September.  We will meet at 10.30 (this means those coming from Truro by bus can travel free if you have a bus pass) and finish at 1230.
If you would be interested in becoming a member of the Family History Group and you have not already sent me an ‘expression of interest’ please e-mail me at sudburyu3a@yahoo.co.uk as soon as possible.

At the History Meeting on September 19th, Anne Clegg gave us an excellent illustrated talk about Sidney Godolphin (Queen Anne's Chancellor). He was a very important figure in British history; he provided the money and resources for Marlborough's successful campaigns against the French culminating in the great victory at Blenheim.

History meeting: 21st November. Truro Con. Club.
Len Sheppard, who is well known and a popular speaker at our History meetings will be giving a talk entitled : “Pax Britannica and the Royal Navy “. This will be an overview of the development of the Royal Navy during this period and how this was affected by foreign policy and foreign naval developments.

Good news!

The running of the history group has been taken over by John Wallace ably assisted by Jon Skelton. One more volunteer would be helpful.
