Ringwood HGS Family History Group meet monthly for talks and visits to inspire and help you with your research
Welcome to the Ringwood Group page. This friendly and welcoming group meets on the third Wednesday of the month (except August) at Ringwood Meeting House, Meeting House Lane, Ringwood where there is free public parking after 6pm. Doors open at 7pm and meetings begin at 7:30pm. Ringwood is a town in the beautiful New Forest, but people come to our meetings from further afield as well as local. We are always pleased to welcome visitors and new members.
Why Join Us?
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 to 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 followed by tea/coffee and biscuits, which gives everyone the opportunity to meet and chat with the speaker and each other.
If you have any articles that you would like included on our group page, please contact us, we would be delighted to receive them.
