Wheatley Family Research Group
The “Family Research” part of the group meets in the Village Hall in South Wheatley on the second Wednesday afternoon of each month from 2.00 to 4.00pm. The format of the meeting is that we start with a short presentation about an aspect of family history research followed by some interesting discussion.
The rest of the time is used for people to do their own research using the connection to the internet which is available at the Village Hall. During this time, more experienced members are on hand to help out wherever they can.
The village hall has full internet access with WiFi connections that we use to help people advance their family tree research projects.
The cost for each meeting is only £3.00. [Members of the Society pay £2.00]
The meeting dates in 2020 are:
January – No meeting in January

Everyone is welcome at these meetings, so please come along and see how we can help you with your family research.
