Andover HGS Family History Group meet monthly for Talks and Visits to Inspire and Help you with your Research

Welcome to the Andover Group page. This friendly and welcoming group meets on the second Thursday of each month, except August, at the Weyhill Fairground Hall, Weyhill. Doors open at 7:15 pm and the meeting begins promptly at 7:30 pm. Andover lies in the north-west of the county and our members come from Andover and the surrounding villages. We are always very pleased to welcome visitors and new members.

Why Join Andover Group?

Joining your local group provides an opportunity to meet other people who share the same enthusiasm for family history and to share skills and expertise. It’s also an opportunity to help others to break down ‘brick walls’ in their research and have some help with your own. The talks, workshops and social events also provide a great opportunity to extend knowledge and have fun!

Come as a visitor, or better still, join the HGS and become part of the larger Hampshire Family History community.

Group meetings are either a talk from a speaker on a family history related subject, or a Members’ Evening, usually arranged around members interests or a requested topic. The meeting is followed by tea/coffee and biscuits, which gives everyone the opportunity to meet and chat with the speaker and each other.
