HGS Fareham Afternoon Family History Group meets for talks and visits to inspire and help you with your research

The Fareham Afternoon Group has been established to cater for HGS members and potential new members who would prefer to meet in the afternoon as an alternative to an evening meeting.

Run by Jane Painter & Chris Pavey, the Fareham Afternoon Group meets eight times a year: March – June and September – December.

Meetings are held from 2pm-4pm in the UPPER room of Wallington Village Hall, Broadcut, Fareham on the THIRD Wednesday of the month. There is free parking in the large car park.

The format is the same as the evening group:  either a family history speaker or a members’ afternoon, with perhaps an additional summer walk around a local area of interest and a Christmas event.

We look forward to seeing you!

Jane and Chris

*Please note that there are no changes to the Fareham Evening Group: this is an ADDITIONAL group.

  • September 16, 2020, 2:00 pm: Crime and Punishment in the 19th Century - Colin Moretti

    The talk touches on crimes and the system of punishment at the end of the 18th century and then addresses the major reforms to sentencing policy and the prison system that took place in the 19th. Portland Prison is covered at length as an example of the reformed system.

  • October 21, 2020, 2:00 pm: Members' Afternoon - A Criminal in Your Family?

    Following on from Colin Moretti's talk last month, we will share details of our criminal ancestors. Maybe they were a vagrant, didn't have a dog license, masterminded a robbery or they were a murderer! What was their punishment?
