Fareham HGS Family History Group meet monthly for Talks and Visits to Inspire and Help you with your Research
Why Join Fareham Group?
Joining your local group provides an opportunity to meet other people who have 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!
The 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 request for a particular topic. The meeting is preceded by tea/coffee and biscuits, which gives everyone the opportunity to socialise, meet, and chat with the speaker.
