The Forum has grown out of the first Family History ‘course’ that ended in July and allows members to discuss their finds, new sources of information, sticking points and all sorts of trivia surrounding their family histories.  The Forum is open to all U3A members who are researching their family histories whether they attended the ‘course’ or not in order that they can benefit from the knowledge of the Group.  It is not suitable for persons who would like to embark on family history research and have no knowledge of how to start.

U3A History Group

The History group has been in limbo since last summer, mainly due to problems funding visiting speakers, on whom the group has depended.  However, having arrived in Cornwall relatively recently, my lack of knowledge of relevant local contacts makes finding suitable speakers an uphill struggle. My repeated requests for help from members have sadly not produced any suggestions (with one honourable exception).  Additionally, my own commitment to other activities has increased.
Therefore, I have decided I am unable to continue organising the group, so until someone else steps forward, I am afraid the History group will have no further meetings. I am sorry for any disappointment this causes those who have attended regularly. I hope that someone, or a small team, will volunteer to re-establish this group, in which case I will be happy to help.
