Gosport HGS Family History Group meet monthly for talks and visits to inspire and help you with your research
Welcome to the Gosport Group page. This friendly and welcoming group meets at 7:30pm, on the second Wednesday of each month. Gosport is a town with a fascinating history located on a peninsular between Portsmouth and Southampton. Our members come from Gosport itself and the surrounding area. We are always very pleased to welcome visitors and new members.
Why Join Gosport Group?
Joining your local group provides an opportunity to meet other people who share the same enthusiasm for family history and to share their skills and expertise. It’s also an opportunity for you to help others break down ‘brick walls’ in their research. You could also get help with your own. The talks, workshops, and social events also provide a great opportunity to extend knowledge and have fun!
The group meetings are either a talk from a speaker on a family history related subject, or a Members’ Evening. They are usually arranged around members interests or a particular topic request. Tea/coffee and biscuits are available before the meeting, allowing everyone the opportunity to meet and chat with the speaker and each other – and plenty of time after the meeting to chat too!
