Andover HGS Family History Group
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, near Andover, where there’s plenty of parking. Doors open at 7pm and the meeting begins promptly at 7:30 pm. We are always very pleased to welcome visitors and new members.
You don’t have to have Hampshire roots to join us: while most members live in Andover or within a ten-mile radius, a large number of us don’t have local connections, and are researching throughout the UK and beyond.
Our speakers cover a wide range of topics of relevance to any family historian. At Members’ Evenings we share stories, discoveries, challenges & brickwalls, expertise & skills – all of interest for long-term researchers and beginners alike. At all meetings there’s a chance to chat over tea/coffee.
We have an extensive library (free loans) of books, CDs, fiches, etc., with new acquisitions constantly being added to the catalogue (emailed to each member).
We organise occasional trips to Family History Shows and places of particular interest for our research.
