Welcome to the International Group!
This Group has been created to cater for HGS members worldwide and our aim is to provide online talks and presentations to inspire and help you with your research.
Wherever you are in the world, if you have Hampshire roots, this is a chance to join us online and get to know us better. Our speakers will be able to tell you more about the places where your ancestors lived and worked as well as covering a wider range of topics relevant to any family historian researching ancestors in England and Wales.
Joining this group will provide an opportunity for you to meet online with other people who share the same enthusiasm for their Hampshire ancestry. Skills and expertise can be shared during discussions and, whilst perhaps helping others break down ‘brick walls’ in their research, you may have some help with your own.
If you have ideas or requests for talks or discussion topics, please do get in touch to let us know.
Group Events & Meetings
These meetings will be held every two months. If we are given permission to record, a meeting may be repeated at a time to benefit members from other parts of the world.
