Review of HGS Conference Day 2019

Our third conference day was held on 15th June and was attended by 150 delegates.   In the luxury of the Fair Oak Suite of the Macdonald Hotel and Spa, Botley, everyone took advantage of the opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.   We welcomed both members and non-members some of whom  travelled long distances to join us.   It was once again a fantastic opportunity for members to meet-up and for non-members to experience the benefits of joining the Society and a good time was had by all.  We even managed to squeeze in our AGM before an excellent lunch.

Steve Manning and David Daldry from the Family History Federation and Phoebe Merrick representing Hampshire Archives and Local Studies joined us and set out their stalls.   Plus our own Research Volunteers, Eileen Davies and Trevor Bumstead, were on hand providing their expertice and free searches of our indexes.

Three brilliant speakers gave talks on different aspects of family history research:   Roz McCutcheon, showed the differences between tracing records associated with the poor in Ireland compared with the rest of the UK; Simon Fowler gave an introduction to using the National Archives and our final speaker of the day was Nick Barratt who offered a glimpse into the future of family history.

News of of our 2020 Conference Day will be published on the website as soon as it is available.

Wield MI Correction

As with all data that gets indexed or transcribed there is always the possibility that information can be misread due to bad handwriting or general aging. Whilst preparing information for the forthcoming village booklet on Wield I have found a prime example of this.
